New England by-election live

7:55 – I won’t bother making any more updates now – once we have most of the results in I’ll put together a booth breakdown and post that.

7:22 – No evidence so far that the voters of New England have judged Joyce harshly for his citizenship bungle. I suspect that voters see the by-election as unnecessary, and possibly have sympathy for him. This fits with the 1996 Lindsay by-election, when Jackie Kelly gained a substantial swing after section 44 threw her out.

6:45 – So far the results don’t look very interesting. With four booths reporting, Barnaby Joyce is on 69.6% of the primary vote.

6:00 – Polls have just closed in New England. I’ll be live blogging the results here as they come in.
