Help Socialist Alliance get registered for next year's state election

Socialist Alliance WA is currently in the process of getting registered to be able to contest WA state elections with our name on the ballot paper.

We are already registered at a federal level and in several states, however, this will be the first time that we will be registered in Western Australia.

In order to be successful, we need to be able to provide a list of 500 members to the WA electoral commission. To be considered, people need to be on the electoral roll and live in WA.

We need your help to achieve this goal.

In order to assist, simply download this form, fill it in and return it to Socialist Alliance WA, PO Box 204, Northbridge WA 6865.

Please encourage your friends and family to assist as well.

If you have any questions about the process, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Ph Alex 0413 976 638 or Sam 0412 751 508.
