Voting above the line? Read this. July 12, 2007 7:35 PM

Roughly 95% of Australians vote above the line in the senate. This makes voting far easier and gives considerable negotiating power to the party you vote for. The downside is that many people are unaware of how their favourite party distributes preferences and may not agree with where their vote ends up. The table below makes it easier for people to figure what will happen to their senate vote. The information is from the Australian Electoral Commission website. It is based on the senate group voting tickets provided by each party in NSW for the last federal election (other state senate tickets are likely to be very similar check the aec website if you have concerns). New tickets will be issued after the next federal election is called.
