2001 Federal Election Funding Payments

Updated: 27 January 2011

Total election public funding paid at the 2001 federal election was $38 559 409.33.

An initial payment of $35 686 005.57 was made on 6 December 2001. This payment represented 95% of the amount due based on the votes counted by 30th November 2001. Once vote counting and verification of results was finalised the remaining amount due was paid.

Candidates and Senate groups become entitled to a payment of election public funding if they obtain at least 4% of the formal first preference votes in the election they contested. The entitlements of candidates endorsed by a registered political party are paid to the party  while those for unendorsed candidates are paid directly to the candidate (or agent  if appointed).

The rate of election funding at this election was 179.026 cents per formal first preference vote for both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
