final count for Ocean Reef

15 09 2008

[I was the Green’s candidate…]

The WAEC has just updated their website with the Ocean Reef results.

Winning candidate was the Liberal’s Albert Jacob after the third preference distribution, with 54.42% of the two-party preferred vote to the ALP’s Louise Durack on 45.58%.

I came in third with 10.42% of the primary vote and 11.94% on preferences after the second distribution. Interestingly, fully one THIRD of my voters preferrenced Liberal over Labor (my How To Vote suggested Labor #2). I also received 31% of Family First preferences after the second distribution, which is probably even more of a surprise.
