The votes are in Canberra! The ACT will have a new number plate slogan after locals voted for ‘Canberra – The Bush Capital’.

Canberrans got to vote for a new slogan and to keep an existing one – with more than 8000 votes tallied.

Locals will be able to choose between ‘Canberra – The Bush Capital’ and ‘Canberra The Nation’s Capital’ when both come into circulation later this year.

They’ll streamline the number plate system in the ACT, with the other existing slogans to be phased out.

Here’s how the votes played out:

New plate slogan (4369 votes):

1 - CANBERRA - THE BUSH CAPITAL (1671 votes, 38%)

2 - NGUNNAWAL COUNTRY (1058 votes, 24%)

4 - CBR - AUSTRALIA'S COOL CAPITAL (366 votes, 8%)

7 - CBR - GREEN AND CLEAN (118 votes, 3%)

8 - CBR - CITY OF DIVERSITY (87 votes, 2%)

9 - CBR - BRILLIANT POSSIBILITIES (70 votes, 2%)

Existing plate slogan to retain (4567 votes):
