Polls have just opened across New South Wales. This post is just a placeholder and open thread to post comments during the day. I may post a few updates here if there are developments.
The final Newspoll was released last night, with the Coalition on 51% of the two-party-preferred vote, up one point on the previous poll. The poll suggests a drop in the Coalition primary since 2015 from 46% to 41%, but only a 1% increase in the Labor primary. Interestingly the poll has the Coalition winning 52-48 in Sydney but tied 50-50 in the rest of NSW, which translates to a bigger swing in regional areas, as predicted.
I’ll see everyone at 6pm tonight.
2pm – I voted this morning at Rosehill Public School in the seat of Parramatta. No democracy sausage there. I noticed when I looked at the Democracy Sausage website map that you can see what some have described as the ‘latte line‘ dividing Sydney from north-west to south-east (also known as the Red Rooster line) – there are a lot more booths registering food stalls across northern Sydney, the inner west and the eastern suburbs compared to the western suburbs.
