7:25pm – The Liberal Party looks set to retain both seats. At the moment they are on 47.7% in Polwarth, which should easily be enough. In South-West Coast they are on 36%, but with ex-Labor candidate Roy Reekie second on 17.7% ahead of the Country Party and the Nationals. This should also be enough.
6:18pm – Polls have now closed in these two state by-elections for these seats in south-western Victoria.
I haven’t done my traditional booth-matching work for these by-elections, but will post occasional updates as results flow in.
