A staffer to former Wollongong MP Noreen Hay will contest charges of electoral fraud at a three-day hearing next month. 

Susan Maree Greenhalgh, 36, of Horsley, is accused of knowingly using forged electoral enrolment application forms in the lead-up to the seat’s November, 2014 pre-selection vote. 

She faces five charges relating to allegedly fraudulent forms which placed five voters at addresses in Wollongong, Coniston and Port Kembla. 

AFP officials have taken statements from 26 people, including the five people whose names appear on the allegedly fraudulent forms.

They are among 17 witnesses expected to come under cross-examination at Wollongong Local Court next month.

At court on Thursday, the matter was set down for hearing on March 15-17.
