But if it's only lower house, you number to the end anyway.

Yeah I meant in the senate. I have no qualms about my lower house vote, I only had Xenophon, Christian Democrats, The Greens for micros & ALP and Liberal for majors. Those are not hard to order (that's not the order).

I would have done a bit more research into senate choices. I presumed I would do as the handout suggested, but found I wasn't happy with who they wanted me to choose so had to quickly make up my own mind.

If neither side can form a minority government, there will be no choice but to hold another election. My understanding is it would be a lower house only vote though.

Not necessarily. They can do either lower house only or whole senate. Can't do half senate as if an election is within two years of a double dissolution, has to be another double dissolution. Unsure if it's the government or the GG who makes the call on the senate. But if they don't dissolve senate, you'd have to assume the house would go more left, to counteract the preponderance of crazy right wing independents in the senate... And thus even less likely a lib victory.

Interesting times....

I wouldn't change mine. I spent a lot of time on it and voted very carefully. My only agonising decision was whether to put Family First or Libs last.

Sadly in the house of reps my choices were so dire I had to put the Liberals quite high up.

My vote would remain the same. Only 5 candidates, only tough call was wether to put Libs or RUA last.

Doesn't make any difference, I'm in a safe Liberal seat, but the smug prick had a 5.93% swing against him. I live in hope that one day our electorate will actually get someone other than a self serving b*st*rd to represnt us. He's a minister so our electorate gets put on the back burner.
