Please also note that people who vote below the line are allowed to make up to six mistakes and still have their vote counted, as long as they don't put two number 1s. Many AEC staff don't know this, and many of these votes (e.g. ones with the Liberal Party boxes left blank) are votes for the Greens.

You live and learn. I did not know this.


  1. I didn't know this either! Thanks for enlightening me - I think my dad will be pleased. He votes below the line but often worries he wrote too 42s or the like.

  2. As I mentioned earlier Rosanna, that is the reason I don't vote below the line.
