Senator FARRELL (South Australia) (18:55): Labor shares the concerns regarding the implementation of so-called voter ID laws and any amendments which would discourage voting and undermine our system of compulsory voting. We are assured, however—and we will be seeking further assurance from the Electoral Commissioner—that the amendments contained in the bill will not result in a polling official demanding identification. We therefore do not believe the change proposed by the Greens is necessary and will not be supporting the amendment.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR ( Senator Fawcett ): The question is that Australian Greens amendments (1) to (4) on sheet 1038 be agreed to.
