Here's some talking points you can use on the call.
Last election 3.3 million people voted for minor parties and independents. These changes would act to extinguish these voters views.
When optional preferential voting has been implemented in the states, we see a huge number of exhausted votes. These votes are effectively thrown away, undermining our democracy.
The last time we ended up with a big swag of Coalition senators, we got WorkChoices. We can't risk the coalition getting an absolute majority.
Who benefits from these changes? Major parties (including us) and the Greens. We can't let our self interest and those of the Greens dictate the way we run our elections.
