When will we find out who has won the election?
There’s a strong chance we won’t find out who has won the election tonight if the results are close.
All votes cast today will be counted tonight, along with the majority of pre-poll ballots submitted in the previous two weeks.
But postal votes won’t be available for the Australian Electoral Commission to begin counting until Sunday afternoon.
While Labor is hoping to cinch a sweeping victory, there’s every possibility there won’t be a clear outcome tonight if results are close.
If that’s the case, it could be days until Australia has a new prime minister named.
Join Scott Emerson, John Stanley, Michael Pachi and our expert team as the votes are counted tonight.
We’ll bring you all the latest updates in a special election night broadcast, starting 7.30pm.
