Victorian election upper house guide

Better late than never (I hope), a guide to the election for the eight five-member regions that constitute Victoria’s Legislative Council.

I’m testing the limits of the better-late-than-never principle here, but let it be noted that I now have a region-by-region guide to the Victorian Legislative Council election in business, featuring brief historical overviews and past results, guides to the tickets for each party, and conveniently placed publication of my simplified upper house preference tickets. The guide can also be accessed on the sidebar, together with the Legislative Assembly guide.

Those who wish to discuss the upper house contest specifically, and to call attention to any glitches that might be in place in my election guide, can do so on this thread. For more general discussion on the Victorian election, this post remains the place to go (at least until later this evening, when the final Newspoll will get its own thread).

  1. Just letting you know there are two pictures of Bruce Atkinson for the Eastern Victorian, assuming Richard Dalla-Riva and him aren’t identical twins or clones. ­čÖé

  2. Might as well give my prediction one more run.

    No change in souths-and-easts.

    Left parties to pick up an extra seat in N and W metro, probably the ALP in both cases but Sex with an outside shot at N Metro.

    Raffle for the 5th in N and W Vic; between LNP and micros (CA?) in N, between Green and micros (Local Jobs?) in W.
