Voters urged to write 'no sale' on ballots

The Greens say they will try to make this month's local government elections a referendum on the sale of the state's electricity retailers.

John Kaye says the Greens are urging people who oppose the plan to write 'no sale' on their ballot paper at the council elections in two weeks.

He says the Greens have written to the NSW Electoral Commissioner to ensure the ballots will be counted.

"We will have scrutineers in almost every polling booth in NSW who'll be counting this," he said.

"We'll be sending a strong message after the election to the Iemma Government that they are absolutely standing to loose out badly if they don't back off on privatisation."
