AEC Finalises $58 Million Of Election Funding To Candidates In Federal Election

The Australian Electoral Commission has made payments to political parties and candidates totalling $58,076,456.01, following the 2013 federal election.

Election funding is provided to parties and candidates polling at least 4% of the primary vote in House and Senate elections. Each first preference vote was worth 248.800 cents.

The payment is indexed. At the 2010 election, each vote was worth 231.191 cents and a total of $53,163,385 was paid to candidates.

Payments to parties and candidates are made in two stages, with the first stage based on the number of votes counted as at the 20th day after election day. The AEC made payments totalling $56,367,240.38 based on the progressive vote count on September 27. The final payment totals $1,709,215.
