9:31pm – People have posted a bunch of results about results in Manningham, Melbourne and Brimbank, where the sitting councillor in Harvester Ward retired and the new Greens candidate managed a quota in her own right. I’ve also been sent a bunch of results from Port Phillip which I’m gonna read now and post the interesting bits.
7:38pm – We have the second Greens gain of the night. With half the booths counted, the Greens candidate in Glen Eira Rosstown is on 26%, so should be elected.
7:25pm – I’ve updated the other page for each council for which we have information.
6:55pm – I’ve been busy scrutineering in Brunswick for Moreland South. Some results that have been coming in: it appears that the Greens candidate in Sugarloaf ward of Nillumbik has fallen short after leading on primary votes. In Surf Coast the Greens candidate is on 10% (a quota) with a small sample, and we should know more later. In Queenscliffe Lloyd Davis remains ahead with 640 votes out of 3000, and a progressive independent is coming second, on the five-member council. The race in Casey River Gum is going down to preferences, with the Greens candidate leading slightly on primary votes.
5:16pm – In Yarra Ranges, Cr Sam Dunn has been re-elected to Lyster ward, with 52% of the primary vote. Her closest rival polled 25%. In Moonee Valley, Cr Rose Iser is polling a quota on primary votes in South Ward, while the Greens candidate is going to struggle in Central Ward. In Greater Bendigo, with primary votes reporting, both Greens councillors are competitive but not safe in their races for their single-councillor wards.
4:04pm – On a sample of 1800 votes in Whitehorse Central, Bill Pemberton is on 21%, with the other Greens candidate John Vincent on 6%, which should be enough to get Pemberton elected if trends continue.
3:56pm – I’m going to set up a separate page listing results by council alphabetically. You can find it at the top of the page.
3:48pm – In Queenscliff, scrutineers are telling us that the Greens are currently running first and well over quota, so it looks like Lloyd Davies will be the new Greens councillor for Queenscliff.
2:29pm – Alright, here we go. Getting some figures in now. So far only a few small country wards have reported to the VEC. With the Greens, some results have come in through our scrutineers. In Mount Alexander, the single-member Calder Ward appears to have gone to the conservative Peter Brook Ackland, defeating Greens candidate Doug Ralph. In Whitehorse Council, Cr Helen Harris appears on track to be re-elected with a sample of 1000 votes in Elgar Ward. Greens candidate Bill Pemberton is running in Central Ward, where a sample of 300 votes currently has it too early to call, although he’s in a good position. In South Ward of Stonnington council we are on about 7% on an early sample, which would not be nearly enough to win a seat. In Yarra Ranges, Greens are running in three wards, including Lyster Ward where there is a sitting Greens councillor. In Streeton and Chandler wards the Greens have fallen short, and the incumbents will be re-elected.
12:22pm – I’m heading out to do some handing out in Moreland, but I’ll try and keep this up regularly. You can follow results at this VEC page. Apart from those country wards which saw councillors elected unopposed, only one ward has primary votes up, which is a ward of Hepburn council, near Ballarat.
