The voters of Mayo have sent a clear message to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) to keep the seat’s boundaries intact.

Federal Member for Mayo Rebekha Sharkie said more than 90 per cent of the 211 submissions to the AEC called for the retention of Mayo.

“It is a clear indication of how strongly my electorate feels about keeping its identity when South Australia loses one of its 11 seats during the current redistribution,” Ms Sharkie said.
