Priority Electorates 2019

Updated to show which candidates have been elected in these priority seats. The link to the ABC profile shows you how the ABC's election analyst Antony Green is calculating the numbers in that seat.   Three seats changed over: Coorangamite and Gilmore were won by ALP candidates from sitting or contending Liberal MPs and Lindsay was won by a Liberal candidate from the ALP. Macquarie is still in doubt, but could be won from the ALP by the Liberal candidate. In seats where sitting members retired, they were retained for their party - Sturt for the Liberals and Jagajaga for the ALP.
