What’s next? Declaration votes and more

From today and over the weekend, declaration votes (including telephone votes) will begin to be counted. These votes have been arriving in their home divisions since Thursday, and have been verified against the electoral roll.

Senate preferences will continue to be captured over the coming days and weeks, with these ballot papers being transported to Central Senate Scrutiny (CSS) in each state and territory after they have undergone fresh scrutiny. At CSS, Senate ballot papers are scanned to capture the millions of further preferences. Check out our latest media release.

What's happening

All election day votes and most pre-polls are counted on election night. We can’t count postal votes tonight. Our mantra is 'right, not rushed'.
