The next time Australia goes to the polls, it will be with a new Senate voting system, whereby voters will be able to control where their preferences go without having to number every single candidate on the ballot paper. The micro-parties and independents hate it -- bar one, popular South Australian Senator Nick Xenophon.

The new 25-member Nick Xenophon Team is fielding candidates across the country. Xenophon is in favour of the voting reform measures -- he has not relied on preferences in years.
