‘No room at the Holiday Inn’ – Three Bridges polling place location to change

This year, however, the polling station will be moved to The Hawth theater as the council was unable to book the hotel.

At a full council meeting on Wednesday March 30, Tory councilor Brenda Burgess and Labor’s Atif Nawaz both asked why no one told them about the change before it was made.

Ms Burgess stressed that she would have been in the dark about the decision had she been approached by residents.

She added, “Was there actually no time that ward members could have been approached?

“There are three of us and none of us have been consulted.

“It would have been nice to know what was going on in my own room.”

Mr Nawaz raised concerns that residents might not notice that the location of the polling station had changed.

He predicted that some might not bother to vote if they went to the Holiday Inn only to be told they were in the wrong place.

The decision to move the polling station was made by Natalie Brahma-Pearl, Chief Executive Officer and Returning Officer.

The meeting was informed that when the hotel went bankrupt there was only a short time to get the new voter card data to the printers.

The amendment was therefore made under emergency provisions, as provided for in the Constitution.
