Early swings to Labor have slowed, and reversed, as voting continues in the ACT election, although it remains in the better position to win government. ACT Labor entered tonight’s election count slightly favoured to win another term in minority government. However, both Labor and the Liberals were expecting a tight election result that will hinge on a few thousands votes in battleground electorates.

There was also a 3.2 per cent swing to the Liberals The Polls closed at 6pm, and authorities expect a relatively short wait until the result is known thanks to the the huge number of Canberrans who voted early. Just 80,000 people were left to vote today. Observers of ACT politics believe Saturday’s outcome will hinge on results in the electorates of Murrumbidgee, which covers Woden and Weston Creek, and Yerrabi, in Gungahlin. The Liberals will most likely need to pick up a third seat in both of those electorates in order secure a 13-seat majority. READ MORE: The blog will appear below here and above the image.
