A primary vote is the “number one” vote cast by an elector in an Australian ballot. It is the best guide to the actual level of support for a political party or candidate, as distinct from the support measured by the two-party-preferred vote.

Preferences & Two-Party-Preferred Votes
The two-party-preferred figure is obtained after all preferences of minor candidates have been distributed to the two remaining candidates, usually Labor and Coalition.
The two-party-preferred statistic is the only valid means of measuring the support of candidates and parties from election to election.
