Vote Planet is suddenly in a position where it must find about 900 more members in the next three months. Yes, that’s right, about 10 members a day.
ALP is supporting an LNP bill that requires all registered microparties to present to the AEC by late November with at least 1,500 members, up from the 500 members originally required to become registered. Read more here.
This is undemocratic to say the least, and a huge blow to any registered party without representation in federal parliament. We will spend the coming months raising membership rather than campaigning for the election.
But there are also opportunities that fall out of this; Vote Planet may end up in a better position than it started.

You could also ask a climate or enviro group to join One Planet and Save the Planet as an alliance member.
