182 Ability to combine recounts

Nothing in section 180 or section 181 requires the electorate votes or the party votes to be the subject of more than 1 recount and, where more than 1 application is received that would involve recounts of the same votes or of both parts of the same ballot papers, those applications may be combined by the District Court Judge conducting the recount.

Section 182: substituted, on 6 December 1995, by section 60 of the Electoral Amendment Act (No 2) 1995 (1995 No 61).
