The Animal Justice Party in Western Australia has grown from strength to strength since its inception here in late 2012.
We have run candidates for the Senate in two federal elections in 2013 (and Senate re-election in 2014) and 2016, and a candidate for the House of Representatives in a 2015 by-election; and we ran 14 candidates in the 2017 WA state election – both Legislative Council and Assembly. Our vote grows every time West Australians go to the polls, with a whopping 38% increase at the last election.
Our membership rocketed from around 80, to well over 500 leading up to the state election, but we must maintain that membership to remain registered as a political party in WA – that’s where you come in.
We need you, and your friends and family and colleagues – anyone who thinks animals deserve someone in Parliament looking out for their best interests, to volunteer or join the party and help us grow even stronger.
We’re thrilled to announce we’ll be running candidates in the Perth and Fremantle by-elections on Saturday 28 July 2018.
ON 28 JULY, VOTE 1 ANIMAL JUSTICE PARTY
With your vote we will:
- Ban all live animal exports
- Free hens from battery cages
- End factory farming
- Stop the slaughter of Australian wildlife
- Establish a completely Independent Office of Animal Welfare
As the only political party in Australia dedicated to ending animal cruelty, winning a seat would enable animals to be represented in parliament, and ensure laws and policies are implemented and enforced to achieve genuine justice for them.
Your vote is powerful – make it count!
You can’t waste your vote in our preferential voting system by voting for a smaller party, but you can most certainly use it to send a loud and clear message to the major parties on animal cruelty and animal protection.
Vote 1 for the Animal Justice Party to promote kindness and protection for animals;
Vote 2 (or 3 or 4) for the major party of your choice, and your vote counts twice – firstly for animals and the environment and then towards whoever wins the seat.
Only you can allocate your preferences on a House of Representatives ballot paper, and you must do that by numbering every box.
Every number 1 vote (primary vote) we receive gets us closer to electoral funding even if we don’t win the seat, and electoral funding allows us to be more visible at the next election!
