Labor’s Justine Elliot has been returned to the seat of Richmond (Tweed, Byron and Ballina shires), after the surprise re-election of the Liberal-National Morrison government on Saturday.

And like many elections preceding this, the Byron Shire Green vote was again instrumental in returning Labor’s Elliot into office.

Nationals candidate Matthew Fraser secured a strong vote in both surrounding electorates of Ballina and Tweed.

According to www.tallyroom.aec.gov.au, the two candidate preferred (TCP) vote for Richmond put Labor’s Elliot at 47,854 votes, or 53.83 per cent of the vote. This is a swing of -0.13 from the last election three years ago. Elliot’s margin against the Nationals’ candidate Matthew Fraser is 6,810. His two candidate preferred result was 41,044, or 46.17 per cent of the vote.

Greens candidate and Byron Shire councillor Michael Lyon picked up 17,727 votes, or 19.94 per cent. The Greens result is a half a per cent swing down from the previous election in 2016.

According to www.tallyroom.aec.gov.au there were 119,446 eligible Richmond electors and the turnout was 79.95 per cent. Informal votes accounted for 6.91 per cent of the total.

First preference count

The following is the first preference count, which is where voters marked a ‘one’ against their preferred candidate. The subsequent preferences of voters and candidates are then taken into account, which produces the two candidate preferred (TCP) result.

Sustainable Australia 2,660 votes or 2.99 per cent

United Australia Party 3,386 votes, or 3.81 per cent

Christian Democratic Party (Fred Nile Group) 1,151 votes, or 1.29 per cent.

Independent Ray Karam 1,321 votes, or 1.49 per cent.

Involuntary Medication Objectors (Vaccination/Fluoride) Party 1,013 votes, or 1.14 per cent

  1. Well I’m pleased Justine Elliot’s in &
    I wish her all the best. Still, many of
    us are wondering about what exactly
    her opinion is regarding Adani.

    • Scott Morrison is smiling because of the work of the Greens, and all the adults and their children that made pivotal one environment issue among many – Adani. It was impossible for Labor candidates to have a response that would not loose them votes in either the southern cities or QLD and other mining areas. It lost him Warringah but also removed Abbot, the bête noire of any Liberal Party PM.

      If he wasn’t so busy getting ready to run the country for the next three years, I am sure Scomo would like to send Bob Brown a thank you card.

  2. Three more years of ScuMo. The grin on his face has widened.
    Warren Snowdon, Northern Territory MP, is correct in saying that some of the Labor deadwood needs to go.
    Try harder Labor so that you get the trust of the majority of Australian voters.

  3. Thanks for providing the breakdown. Lets not lose faith. Look around you, most people in your community have a brain. Unfortunately the vibe in Mullum over the weekend was one of a wake.

    Its fair enough to grieve and remember 3 years is nothing in the scheme of things.

    An ex prime minister did just lose his seat in one of the wealthiest parts of australia because he is a climate change denier. That is a big thing.
