    Does and one know how the the half senate election will be conducted in 2019?

    How will it be determined which 38 only get 3 years and the other 38 get 6 years?

    Would it be based on the best quota obtained in the 2016 election?

    The labor pond scum tried to scare me (and everyone else) into voting labor.

    The others didn't. Even the greens guy was super pleasant. Had a nice chat for a few minutes.

    Ipso facto the truth of my words is self evident, countryman or not.

    And bias? I dont think I voted how you think I voted. ;)

    Sportsbet odds this morning,

    Sworn in government: Coalition/Labor $1.08/$7.00.

    Hung parliament Y/N: $1.70/$2.05.

    Coalition majority/minority: $2.15/$1.90.
    Labor majority/minority: S34.00/$7.00.

    Another election in 2016: $7.00

    Postal votes thus far are flowing in favour of the Libs.

    By the time the AEC gets the result out, we could have had another election.

    When are we going to get E- voting ?

    We would know the result on the night.

    I wondered about this as well. E-Voting, they say, is not yet secure enough. Are there other democracies using this successfully yet?

    That wouldn't fix anything. It would most likely increase the vote of discontent and force whoever wants to form Government to negotiate and compromise. That might even lead to a Labor-Green coalition.

    Funny how it's secure enough to submit your tax online, but not to vote?!!

    And they don't even ask to see any ID at the polling booth anyway, so how secure is that?!

    Probably a good idea but I would fear the way Labor operate they would find a loop hole in which to rort the system to increase their votes......They like to win at all cost no matter what it takes.

    It would beat the blatant manipulation by both parties towards postal votes. Sending out postal vote forms with a prepaid envelope that appears to be sent to the AEC but is instead sent to party headquarters where they take all your personal information and then forward the vote onto the AEC. They probably rig those votes too.
