Senators elected


For a candidate to be elected to the Senate they need to gain a full quota of the formal votes. The table below represents an indicative quota based on first preference votes as cast above the line only. Each party's quota can provide some indication as to the potential for candidates in that party to be elected but does not account for votes cast below the line.

Note: The distribution of preferences determines which candidates are elected to the Senate. This process is conducted as soon as possible after all votes have been received and counted and can take several weeks to occur.
