The town of Richford has been voting their budget by Australian Ballot for
about 25 years. It works very well. We have a much greater voter turn out.
We have yet to have to revote a municipal budget, School budgets at least 5 in
the last fifteen years have had to be revoted, some years even the second
revote was needed.
