The Federal government is using a postal ballot to decide which site to choose as a nuclear waste dump, but local indigenous landowners have found themselves locked out of the process.

Their case will now be determined by the Human Rights Commission. Adjoining owners the Adnyamathanha people are also against the dump but many cannot vote.
