6:00 – Polls have just closed in New England. I’ll be live blogging the results here as they come in.

Well that was an interesting election night! Almost one third of seats have a candidate other than Labor or the LNP in the top two, with a few others where a minor party is threatening for the top two. We also have numerous seats where it is very unclear who will come in second place (ala Prahran 2014), so those seats will likely drag on for numerous days.
I thought I’d run through my assessment of where the seats stand, and what information we are lacking for each seat.
6:00pm – Polls have just closed across Queensland. I will be joining the Guardian’s liveblog so don’t expect too many updates here, but I will post a few quick updates. Please use this thread for discussion of tonight’s results.
Polls will open in 25 hours in Queensland and the comments threads have been lighting up here with people discussing each electorate.
In particular there have been a few people posting their predictions on each seat guide.
So I thought I would resurrect an old tradition and create a thread for people to post their predictions of what will happen tomorrow.
7:09pm – First booth in is Darebin Parklands, and we’ve seen a 15% swing to the Greens on primary vote and an 11.3% swing away from Labor.
6:40pm – Polls closed 40 minutes ago in the Northcote by-election. I’ll be analysing the results here as they come in over the coming hours.
9:00am – Results will be announced in one hour, at 10am AEDT. I plan to download the data as quickly as possible and publish some interesting results as soon as possible, so please stay tuned right here.
Nominations closed on Tuesday for the Queensland state election, so I’ve done one last update for my candidate list.
There are 453 candidates running: an average of 4.87 per seat.
Labor, the Liberal National Party and the Greens are all running a full ticket. There are nine seats where they are the only parties running.
Nominations close today in the Queensland state election. I did an update of candidates last night, checking each of the main party websites for missing candidates, and taking onboard all the candidate updates posted in comments – thanks to you all.
I’ll be undertaking some maintenance tomorrow morning on this website. I’ll have to copy the contents of the website over to a new server, so there’ll be a period where any new comments may be lost. I plan to do this between 9am and 12pm tomorrow, but I’ll post on here when I’m starting and finishing. I advise avoiding commenting during this time.
