QLD election – where we stand

November 26, 2017 - 12:16 -- Admin

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.

QLD election eve prediction thread

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.

Website maintenance Saturday

November 3, 2017 - 20:47 -- Admin

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.
