Unlike previous years, the Chief Electoral Officer will not be releasing the final count (including specials) progressively as each electorate is finalised. They will all be released this Saturday.
However some electorates will have observers there for the count of the specials. This may give some indication as to the overall trend. Therefore, if anyone out there gets any info on how the specials have gone locally, could you e-mail them to me. If I get half a dozen or so, then I should be able to make some predictions on how many list seats, if any, will change hands due to the specials.
