Access to Electoral Roll: St Georges Terrace

To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of Concerned Citizens of Western Australia draws to the attention of the House our concerns at the accessibility of our private addresses, without our knowledge or permission, to any member of the general public from the computers based in the foyer of the Electoral Commission situated on the 13th Floor - 200 St. Georges Terrace Perth. The privacy, welfare and safety of ourselves and family is greatly jeopardised. This is unacceptable to us.

We therefore ask the House to act on having the computers removed from the foyer of the Electoral Commission and that anybody asking for information to complete a form providing photo identification and reasons for the request. A strict guideline must be met before this information is handed over by authorised staff. The completed form is to be registered and also forwarded to the citizen of whom the request was made against, so that they are made aware.
