Left-of-centre politics dodged a bullet yesterday when Tasmania became the first state to have its Senate election result finalised.

    I was one of the many who put Lisa at 1 and Eric at 58. It was tedious numbering the whole card but ultimately satisfying.

      I put Lisa Singh first but couldn’t be bothered doing all 58, ended up just going to 12.

      But I think that with the minimum below the line vote being 12 the above the line voting should be abolished.

      I would also like to see random orders of candidates and random party/group orders introduced.

      Also: “Singh is the first candidate to buck a ticket order and win election to the Senate since Labor’s Bill Aylett in 1953.”
