Informal Votes – 4,9420.2%
Total Valid Votes – 2,119,953100%
This is the preliminary result, the final result will be declared on March 30th.
That result is a lot closer than polls indicated but sadly, in my opinion, not close enough.
However, by the time you take people who voted for the staus quo because they didn’t like the alternative, the cost or the process, or for partisan political reasons, rather than genuinely voting for it, this shows there is a mood for change.
