Close seats

The data provided in this table can be filtered by geographical location by selecting the different state/territory buttons.

Selecting 'national' will return all available data.

This table provides a list of close seats based on the current two candidate preferred (TCP) count regardless of the margin from the previous federal election.

The data includes the current percentage of TCP votes counted, the current percentage of TCP votes for the incumbent party and the current swing - the current percentage of TCP votes for the incumbent party compared to the previous election.

This table is sortable by selecting on column headers.


  1. The incumbent party is the party that won that particular electoral division at the previous federal election.
  2. Two candidate preferred or TCP is a count of the two leading candidates only. Votes are recorded for a particular candidate if the preference on the ballot paper for that candidate is higher than the alternative TCP candidate, regardless of other preferences. The TCP count ultimately determines who wins the seat.
  3. The term 'Held by' may not relate to actual results from the last event. Redistributions of electoral boundaries are taken into account and may produce notional results for any electoral division in a redistributed state or territory. See www.aec.gov.au/redistribution for further information.
  4. These results are not final.
