Candidates, state your preferences

CANDIDATES in the upcoming local election don't have to let voters know who they want you to place as a second preference until the day of the election.

The Advocate wants to know if the voters want to know earlier than that.

In our poll we're asking voters what you want.

Are you happy to find out on September 8 if the candidate you intend to vote for would like you to preference a second vote elsewhere, even if it's a candaidate you're not overly impressed with?

Or would you rather know ahead of time if you're going to be asked to give a second preference vote.

Early polling and the result of the last mayoral election suggests second preference voting could be vital in deciding who will be Mayor of Coffs Harbour for the next four years.

The Advocate awaits your vote.
