"Is a member of parliament's vote worth more than a normal citizen's"

No. Like all Australian citizens over the age of 18 years, members of parliament must vote in federal elections but their vote is not worth more than the vote of anyone else. The concept of ‘one person, one vote’ means that there is an equality of everyone's vote, and this is a core principle of Australian democracy.
