Senate vacancy South Australia

As directed by the High Court, the AEC conducted a special count of South Australian senate ballot papers at the AEC state office in Adelaide on Thursday 13 April 2017.

The High Court also directed the Australian Electoral Officer for South Australia to provide the result of the special count to the Court for its consideration.    

The AEC does not declare the outcome of the special count, this being a matter for the Court.  Accordingly, the AEC will not be issuing any public announcement while this matter is before the Court.

On 5 April 2017, the High Court of Australia sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns determined that Mr Robert (Bob) Day was disqualified from nominating for the 2016 South Australian Senate election due to the operation of section 44 of the Constitution.

See the previous AEC media statement for further background.
