The Federal Labor Senator was relegated to an unwinnable position, but is seeking below the line votes.
Tasmanian Labor Senator Lisa Singh is distributing her own personalised flyers in her home state, asking to "re-elect Lisa Singh to the Senate". It is highly unusual for a senator to ask to be re-elected in this way, as parties usually campaign for above-the-line votes for the party, with the order of the candidates decided by the party. Singh was relegated to the unwinnable sixth place by the Labor Party in May this year, after being demoted to fourth place last year before a double dissolution election was announced.
Last year Singh blamed factional deals for her low place on the Senate ballot paper. She is an unaligned member of the Left faction.
