Election 2012. Showtime

By johnboy - 20 October 2012 159

Alright ladies and gentlemen.

You can drop your election night observations in the comments and I’ll be sure to clear them from whichever watering hole I find myself in.

Feel free to share your thoughts as the night rolls on!

It’s all over Barr the shouting. Katy to rule the roost again!

Is Noel Towell clearing out his desk yet?

Antony Green now rattling off all the figures the Canberra Times seems to have gotten wrong. Ouch.

Pocock unfortunately has more early votes than any other ungrouped candidate http://www.electionresults.act.gov.au/partyungrouped.html

Lets hope that early lead will evaporate :s

Ugh. Still outpolling Stuart Biggs in Molonglo. What the hell is going on there??!!

Canberra times polling not looking any better. If the Libs get their traditional bounce of polling day over pre poll it’s an interesting night

Meegan Fitzharris currently outpolling both Andrew Barr and Simon Corbell who will both be relying on Katy’s coat tails.

Guilia Jones, who has been bouncing back and forth between ACT and tassie elections at both local and federal level, a true perennial candidate with no platform but an endless campaign budget, looks like she may get a seat at the cost of Doszpot who had to leave Brindabella to make way for Zed.

Joy Burch, who wants to trash the fitter workshop, looks close to making a quota herself while the folks down south look set to boot Amanda Bresnan.

Steve Doszpot currently in 3rd place out of Liberals in Molonglo, Looks like the electorate swap with Zed may not be that good for him.

Well if he loses it’s going to be to another liberal. The Libs are sitting on 3 quotas for Molonglo, even if it drops they’ll still scrape in eventually.

Liberals have definitely taken a seat from the Greens in Molonglo and it’s looking fairly likely in Brindabella. I’m going to call it now that Ginninderra will decide the election.

Well this election is in the bag, the only real question remaining to be answered is who the new opposition leader will be?

That’s the safe bet.

The drama for tonight is whether a non-Labor takes any of the three electorates.
Here’s to hoping…

Looks like the libs are gonna take a couple of seats at the greens expense

Motorist Party and Greens falling already. Bullet Train polling well so far. Simon Corbell will be feeling nervous, slow out of the gates and will be hoping quotas pick him up.

Zed Seselja already on 1.7% quotas – proof the red necks of the south will vote for a prissy private school guy with a decent scare campaign. Oh christ.

Ct polling looking worthless

Well this election is in the bag, the only real question remaining to be answered is who the new opposition leader will be?

Will it be the always glamorous Vicki Dunn, the common man of the people Alistair Coe, the likeable stalwart Brendon Smyth or the favourite (and probable) Jeremy Hanson? Will Zed keep the leadership, or will he bow out of the Assembly altogether?
