The yes vote crew are still winning this morning. I think the poll will end today. Please vote even if you are not in the Proposed Park area. We will lose prospecting land if it goes ahead.

Make sure your No votes are on the poll and not just here.  We were still winning but that can change quickly. It says a Weekly poll and i don’t know if it ends Sunday night or before hand.

I cleared my cookies and web site data from the phone and the poll site still knew i had voted before. I don’t see any new weekly poll yet and when i used a different phone Saturday morning it still took my vote. I wondered if whoever put up the poll wanted a different result and was leaving it open.

4268 total votes. I just managed another vote by going to the poll result first and then back to the No vote. I think the yes vote has risen.
Strange the poll is still visable. Can someone else have another try. Take note of the figures before you vote.

Just voted again , No vote went up by one . NO 2551 , YES 1719 . It's such a tiny proportion of the population voting , really it's meaningless .

It may be meaningless but at least the detecting population is winning.

I have just sent an email to the weekly times giving them the details and asking them to finalise the poll. I pointed out that the No vote had won. I felt like asking if Kath Sullivan was waiting for a different result but said nothing until i get a reply. I also managed another vote but the third time today it said we have already counted your vote.

The really sad part is that they can get 1719 people to vote no . What's wrong with these people who wan't to lock up everything , not just there , but all over the country . Don't they ever get out in the bush and do something . Seems to me that the gap between the city and the bush is widening at a frightening rate .
