NSW by-elections live (sort of)

October 14, 2017 - 18:32 -- Admin

6:59pm – Blacktown is predictably uninteresting, with Labor on 71.7% of the primary vote.

6:58pm – With over 7000 primary votes counted in Murray, the Nationals lead with 43.5% to 33.3% to the Shooters. We also have about 1500 votes distributed for two-candidate-preferred, and the Nationals are barely leading with 50.4%.

Breaking down the Inner West Council results

September 15, 2017 - 10:00 -- Admin

I’ve been paying quite a bit of attention to the Inner West Council results. It’s my former council area, but it’s also one of the most interesting councils. The Labor, Liberal and Greens parties all feature prominently, along with a wide variety of independents.

I’ve also written a piece for the Parramatta Sun about the Parramatta and Cumberland council results which I’ll share here when it’s posted.

Swings and vote totals – NSW council elections

September 10, 2017 - 20:41 -- Admin

I’ve pulled together the primary vote totals as of this afternoon and calculated swings for each council and ward in urban NSW.

I’ve restricted my analysis to councils between Newcastle and Shellharbour, as councils outside this area are almost always dominated by independents.

Across this region, here were the total votes for the three large parties:

Run of the board – NSW council elections

September 10, 2017 - 09:40 -- Admin

In this post I will quickly summarise the state of play in the 14 most populous councils I have analysed (excluding Ku-ring-gai, where no tickets are standing across multiple wards). I’ll be back later today with some analysis of the swings across the councils and over the coming days I’ll do deeper analysis of some of the more interesting councils.

Labor has won a majority in Canterbury-Bankstown and Newcastle, with a chance in Cumberland, Georges River and Wollongong.

Election night coverage – NSW council elections 2017

September 9, 2017 - 19:11 -- Admin

7:10pm – Very small vote in all five wards in Northern Beaches currently has Your Northern Beaches on track for 6 seats, Liberal 5, Greens 2, and two other independents. The Liberals look unlikely to be able to stitch together a majority.

6:40pm – Polls have closed forty minutes in councils across New South Wales. Join me as I track the results. We should start to see some data after 7pm.

NSW council election day

September 9, 2017 - 11:07 -- Admin

polls are open today in a bunch of councils across NSW – the new amalgamated councils and those who survived amalgamation attempts.

I’ll be covering the results tonight from 6:30pm. Today I’ll be driving around to some of the polling booths in Sydney, so check out my Twitter account (@thetallyroom) for anecdotes and photos.

I’ll also be on Backchat on FBI radio at 11:15 discussing the elections.
