This makes me quite happy. Would prefer those who I didn't bother putting a number for not getting my vote at all rather than some 12th party preference or something.

Alas, no democracy sausages at my local.

ABC's is a prediction so expect it to move all over the place. For a while Libs were over 50 and Labor was under 40. Ignore it until about 10 or 11, I reckon.

Most of the seats have all the regular polling places counted I think, at least on the east coast. There's still pre-polls and postals but I don't know if those will even come through on the weekend.

In Lindsay the Liberal and Labor candidates are separated by 1600 votes. Informals currently sit at 8,014 which shows how close that 1,600 is. It'll have to go to preferences even after all the early votes are done I expect. That's when it starts taking a lot longer.

Probably safe to go to bed unless you really want to hear Shorten and Turnbull waffle. Result might be known tomorrow, more likely Monday or later. :doh:

Yep both of those sound right I reckon. Looks like the Libs are back in but this will far from cement Mal's leadership, Tony's supporters are just going to get more rowdy, more chaos, yay! :roll:

Andrew Bolt was out for blood hours ago. Only going to get more vicious.

He's so deluded. If Abbott was still in, he would have given his concession speech by now.

Looks like I'm still a possibility of getting both my election bets... one on Labor forming government and the other on a hung parliament :D

Eden-Monaro currently says Labor by a reasonable margin... despite a redistribution in 2016 that was expected to shore up the Liberal base vote in the seat. So either it loses its 44 year "bellwether" status, or we get a Labor government.
