4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".
Commonwealth considers voter ID as Queensland wants to drop it

“There is sporadic evidence of possible multiple voting in Australia, but not at a level to raise systemic concern; in any event, voter ID is no cure for that,".
Critics argue, marginalised and vulnerable community sectors are unfairly disadvantaged by required voter ID at the polling booths, however the LNP state executive maintains there isn’t concrete evidence from the electoral commission showing these fears have materialised necessitating the removal of the legislation.
The federal government will consider the joint standing committee's recommendations and the state committee is due to report back to the Queensland Parliament ahead of the first May sitting.
