Ben is joined by Glenn Kefford and Shaun Ratcliff to discuss tomorrow’s Queensland state election.
Six days after the ACT election, we now have a fairly good sense of the shape of the Assembly. The Assembly will be led by an enlarged Labor-Greens majority, with Labor and Liberal both losing seats and the Greens gaining seats. There are two seats left in play.
The New Zealand electoral system tends to produce a flattening effect on the results. Most electorate results don’t really make a difference to the national outcome so the results analysis tends to just look at the national figures. But there is value in delving down and looking at the geography.

I did not do a comprehensive guide to the New Zealand election but I have managed to pull together a bit of data at the last minute. This post contains a map of every election day booth used in 2017. All electorates using the same booth have been merged together (including Māori electorates) and I am just using the party vote, to give a sense of general trends across the country.
Earlier this week I made a last-minute decision to do some analysis of the New Zealand election, including the new electoral boundaries.
I discovered that no-one appears to have actually calculated the vote shares for the new electoral boundaries drawn since the 2017 election. So I thought I would do that.
