The count that counts for Uni Tasmania

Counting has started in the Hobart council elections – including the non-binding vote on U Tasmania’s relocation from its present campus to the CBD

The question ended up on the ballot paper due to a fierce community campaign against the move.

A vote in favour of the move will not stop the agin campaign but if a majority of electors oppose it the council and U Tasmania are in strife. Council because it holds the planning powers and the university because opponents of the move will present it as defying the will of the rate-payers, regardless of the size of the vote
