Election Funding Payments: 2010 Federal Election

This table shows the election funding payments made to political parties and candidates following the 2010 federal election.

A candidate or Senate group needs four per cent of the primary vote to be eligible for election funding. The amount is calculated by multiplying the number of votes obtained by the current funding rate.

The funding rate for the 2010 election was 231.191 cents per House of Representatives and Senate vote. The rate is indexed every six months to increases in the Consumer Price Index.

Just over $53 million was distributed to parties and candidates.
