Western Australian state election 2005

Today is voting day in Western Australia to elect a new state

Polling looks to be very tight and we'll publish the result, as soon as
it is known, tonight.

This morning on the Bunbury Online website poll, there's a massive
swing to current Bunbury City Council mayor John Castrilli with 45% of
all poll votes cast. Sitting member Tony Dean has only polled 18% of
the vote and is on almost equal terms with a number of independents and
minor party candidates. The seat of Bunbury is crucial to the Labor
Party maintaining government but on the results of the Bunbury Online
poll there will be a massive swing to the Liberal Party.
