Note: Australian totals for party votes and party percentages include NSW, Vic, Qld and WA only. South Australian and Tasmanian multi-member constituencies are not included in these totals. In multi-member constituencies where voters were able to cast more than one vote, the number of valid (aggregate) votes exceeds that total number of voters. Percentages of total valid votes in multi-member constituencies are shown as percentages of the aggregate vote, i.e. all valid votes added together.
(a) Informal vote not know for two WA electorates; affected numbers and percentages are italicised.
