The Official 2014 WA Senate Election Results

This website contains the progressive election results as calculated at Thursday, 24 April 2014 08:04:49 PM and were published on Friday, 25 April 2014 12:19:09 PM.

  • 1,480,191 electors enrolled to vote.
  • 100.00% of polling places have counted first preferences.
  • In a Senate election, a candidate is elected if they receive a 'quota' of votes. All Senate first preference votes must be counted in order to determine the quota. The quota cannot be determined until after all normal ballot paper rechecks are completed and the final day for receipt of postal votes has passed, Tuesday 22 April.
  • Once the quota has been determined, the distribution of preferences can occur and the successful candidates decided. The result of a Senate election is usually known about four weeks after election day.
