The postal votes have so far trended towards the Coalition, as the government had predicted when the result was still unknown last week. One caller on 3AW’s Rumour File this morning, however, suggests that there are still a few postals to be counted.
“She says her postal vote has not been counted, because it is still waiting at a post office waiting to be collected, for the last two weeks. She says she knows this because she sent it registered mail, and tracking says it is still at the post office.”
The AEC has 13 days from polling day to count the postals, so we understand this is not that unusual.
