    The only reason he got voted in last time was because he was first on the ballot and they changed the name of the party to LIBERAL democrats. He even said himself he was the "donkey senator". He never should have been there in the first place.

    I would agree with you there. He got over 2.5% of the vote this time, down some 6%. LDP performance is up in some states, down in others. I'd say the Vic Branch would be especially disappointed with their number of votes.

    There are libertarian minded members in the Libs, and there are libertarian minded bureaucrats and government contractors - if that's any consolation.

    Not really. LDP is the first and only political party I ever joined. Now they have zero relevance.

    I might be living in the wrong country :(

    Hopefully the ALA voters/votes might flow towards the LDP.

    Met a few ALA people yesterday - a very friendly bunch.

    Pauline is easy to understand and appeals to people's fears.

    At 0:27 The senator tells us you can just put in one vote even though the paper tells you to put at least six and it is still valid.

    Is this true? Or would that make my vote invalid?

    I usually leave without voting but I thought this time I would give them the vote, nice to have a bit of variety when throwing your vote away.

    The AEC site clearly says you need to number at least 1 to 6 above the line, or at least 12 below the line. If the senator has told potential voters to mark 1 only, then he's done a disservice to them. :/

    See http://aec.gov.au/Voting/How_to_Vote/Voting_Senate.htm

    Edit - but, looking further on the AEC's page on Informal Voting ( http://www.aec.gov.au/Voting/Informal_Voting/ ) there's a link which talks about 'Vote savings' provisions:
