Can You Help?

This website is in imminent danger of being shut down. It has been online since 1995, but the personal circumstances of the owner, Malcolm Farnsworth, are such that economies have to be made. Server costs and suchlike have become prohibitive. At the urging of people online, I have agreed to see if Patreon provides a solution. More information is available at the Patreon website. If you are able to contribute even $1.00/month to keep the site running, please click the Patreon button below.

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. Whilst the primary vote is indicative of party support, the use of compulsory preferential voting produces a more reliable figure for measuring swings for and against the Coalition and the ALP.
