Election Funding Payments: 2016 Federal Election

This table shows the first round of election funding payments made to political parties and candidates following the 2016 federal election.

The second round of funding will be made when all results are finalised. The figures shown below will increase but not substantially. This page will be updated when all funding has been paid.

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 2016 election was 262.784 cents per House of Representatives and Senate vote.

Funding was provided to 24 parties and groups, compared to 12 at the 2013 election. There were 24 independent candidates who received funding, compared to 9 in 2013.

Just over $60.4 million was distributed to parties and candidates.
