Awaiting Government Response
What was the inquiry about?
This inquiry looked at whether Victoria should participate in a national electoral roll platform (rather than the state of Victoria continuing to maintain its own electoral roll platform).
What is the inquiry up to now?
We have now tabled the final report for this inquiry.
The Government has six months to respond to the recommendations in the report. The response will be published on this website when it is received. In its response, the Government will indicate whether it supports the Committee’s recommendations. It can also outline actions it may take.
