The Australian Electoral Commission has announced today that no election day cake stalls will be allowed this year due to the threat posed to voters with nut allergies.
A spokesperson for the AEC said: “People should be allowed to vote without being threatened with asphyxiation by some child trying to foist a slice of homemade carrot cake on them or worse chocolate crackles.
“I mean these homemade cakes have no ingredients lists on them and no one has inspected the kitchens they are baked in to ensure they comply with work health and safety.”
The election day cake stall is a valuable fundraiser for schools. When reached for comment on the cake stall ban, Jenna aged 6 from Ash Hill public school said: “But that’s not fair I helped Mummy bake some cupcakes to sell, you’re mean.”
The AEC declined to respond to Jenna’s comments in person however they did ask The (un)Australia to blow a raspberry at her.
As well as the election day cake stall anyone planning to vote for Pauline Hanson will be asked to vote via a postal vote as the public is also at risk of being exposed to these nuts.
