This is an example of a ballot paper from the 1990 federal election.
The ballot paper is from the Victorian electorate of Higgins. A safe Liberal seat, Higgins had been represented by Roger Shipton since 1975. Earlier it was held by two Liberals who became prime minister: Harold Holt (1949-67) and John Gorton (1968-75).
Costello won the election with 56.3% of the primary vote and 61.8% of the two-party-preferred vote.
Costello went on to hold the seat in 1993, 1996, 1998, 2001, 2004 and 2007. He served as Treasurer in the Howard government (1996-2007) and retired in 2009.
