Project Brief

1. Assist WA disability sector organisations (DSOs) to develop positive complaints cultures which empower people with disability families and carers to understand how to provide feedback and complaints, and feel confident and comfortable with providing feedback and complaints about the supports and services they receive.

2. Develop sector understanding of complaints processes – those both internal and external of the organisation. For example DSO, Disability Service Commission and Health and Disability Services Complaints Office (HaDSCO) processes.

3. Develop sector understanding of reporting and capacity to respond to serious and sentinel events.

4. Ensure staff in DSOs understand how best to provide support to people with disability, their families and carers, and/or how to empower people with disability to provide feedback and complaints and how to respond to people with disability, families and carers when issues and incidents are raised or have occurred.

5. Similarly ensure staff in DSOs understand how they can raise concerns, or provide feedback and complaints about issues or incidents.

Come along and share your views.

Telephone voting for the 2016 federal election

Voters who are blind or have low vision will be able to cast a vote in secret by telephone from any location, including their own homes.

Register
Voters must first register to cast their vote by telephone. Registration will be available from Monday 13 June 2016. When a voter calls to register, they will be asked questions to enable a check of the electoral roll, and will also asked to choose a PIN. Once registered, they will be sent a registration number by email, SMS, postal mail, or through a phone call.

Call to vote
Telephone voting will be available from Tuesday 14 June 2016. When voting, electors will not need to give their name. Their registration number and PIN will be used to mark their name off the electoral roll while protecting their privacy. It is important that voters do not forget their registration details.

Vote
A call centre voting assistant will record the voter’s preferences on the ballot papers. The vote will be secret and a second voting assistant will ensure that the vote is recorded according to the voter’s intention.

The vote remains secret because the call centre voting assistants will not know the voter’s name and address. Once the vote is complete, the voting assistant will place the ballot papers into a secure ballot box.

Information for electors with disability
Updated: 9 May 2016

A range of information and services is available to help electors with disability to cast their vote for the 2016 federal election.

Access for people with disability
Polling places with disabled access will be shown on the website when available. The polling places identify the level of accessibility (full, assisted or none).

You can ask someone to help you vote. Polling place staff are trained to assist you, or you can nominate any person (except a candidate) to assist. This person could be a friend, relative or a party worker. If voters do not nominate someone, then the polling official in charge will provide assistance.

The assistant reads the contents of the ballot paper and then completes the ballot paper according to the voter’s preferences.

There are also special arrangements at polling places for people who cannot get out of their car. If the polling official in charge is satisfied that you cannot enter the polling place, someone will bring the ballot papers to you.

Telephone voting
Voters who are blind or have low vision will be able to cast a vote in secret by telephone from any location, including their own homes.

Telephone voting

Apply for a postal vote

An assistant may complete the ballot papers and envelope, but the voter must sign the envelope or make a mark as a signature.
