Change of Australian Sex Party to Reason Victoria

The name of the Australian Sex Party - Victoria was officially changed to Reason Victoria today.

The party applied to change its name to Reason Victoria, with the abbreviation “Reason”, on 6 December 2018. As required by section 49 of the Electoral Act 2002, the VEC advertised the application and invited objections. No objections were received.

Certain names are not acceptable under the Electoral Act, including names that are confusingly similar to the name of another registered political party. The name “Reason Victoria” is acceptable under the Act, and will be printed next to the party’s endorsed candidates’ names on ballot papers at the next State election.
