Quiet night for me. I've somehow managed to rope myself into "guarding" a booth for an hour or two at 3am tonight, before watching the Wales vs Belgium match, before heading to a different booth to do How To Vote Card distribution for most of the day.

Should be an interesting 24 hours 👍

Saw an image of her on Twitter supposedly volunteering for Feeney.

Fuck I can't wait for Feeney to lose tomorrow.

I don't know what to expect tomorrow. The sausage sizzle is essentially the only constant. Might enjoy snubbing Liberal and Labor volunteers as per usual.

Are you in one of those electorates that could fall from the Libs to NXT? Because I'd take NXT over the Libs and it would bring the result that much closer to a hung parliament. God I hope we see the backs of Briggs and Pyne.

I do think Batman will go Green. I've spent a fair bit of time around the electorate lately and it's amazing just how many corflutes, billboards, and posters there are for Alex Bhathal. So many fences in Northcote covered in Greens stuff. Practically nothing for Feeney. Even as you head north to Bundoora there's still more Greens than ALP stuff, despite the fact that Batman - like Wills - in theory extends into ALP heartland.

I would love Samantha Ratnam to pull off a shock in Wills. I get the feeling people aren't entirely warming to the new ALP candidate, Peter Khalil, and the Greens are running so hard. But Wills contains too much rusted-on ALP territory north of Bell St.

My prediction: hung parliament or a Liberal majority of no more than six seats. Total chaos in the Senate.

The electorate NXT are likely to win is Mayo, mine is a safe Liberal seat. It's fascinating, the only real letters I've been getting have been from the respective Liberal and Greens candidates, Labor have had a lesser presence in this. I get the impression Labor aren't going hard in my seat, citing aforementioned reasons.

Whatever happens, I'll likely have ABC24 on for much of the day.

Well Mayo was thought to be a safe Liberal seat too!

Aaaand...

IT'S ELECTION DAY!

I'm angling more and more for 'total chaos in the senate'. If we must be stuck with this contemptible zombie excuse for a government, then let them be stymied at every turn.

Imagine a Senate with a crossbench of 10 Green, 3-4 NXT, Lazarus and/or Hanson, Hinch, Lambie, Bob Day, and a couple of other circus freaks who get lucky somehow. I'm sure there will be at least one unpredicted result, like - total stab in the dark here - the anti-vax Health Australia flukes it in NSW or the anti-trawling Recreational Fishers in Tasmania or the Pirate Party hacks the AEC in WA to steal three positions.

Can't wait to see how few votes Dio Wang and the not-Palmer not-United not-Party get.

I'm trying to imagine all that and it sounds like a right alphabet soup.

I'd say that the short and unhappy life of the Palmer United Party is shortly to enter Australian Democrats territory.

Or maybe we'll get a surprise success from Rooting & Shooting (Stop The Greens) or whatever that bunch are called.

If the Shooters & Fishers ever merge with the Sex Party, "Rooting & Shooting" would be the ideal name.

They might just do it too, I mean they've got a shared interest in freedom and... uh, stuff.

I hope the Liberal Democrats' lone senator gets his ass handed to him at least.

Yeah now that he can't rely on the donkey vote he will hopefully be turfed out. Though I'm worried he may sneak back in on the lower quota as his profile will get him a halfway ok first preference vote.
