  • Science Party/Cyclist Party score a strong left-hand position

    Posted by · June 10, 2016 12:52 PM

    The Science Party has pulled a strong left-hand position at number 9 (column I) at the NSW senate ballot draw today.
    The Science Party/Cyclist Party ticket is one of the longest on the ballot with 4 candidates. Other parties with longer tickets include Greens, Labor, Liberal and CDP with 12 each. Socialist Alliance also has 4 candidates.
    The position is slightly to the right of the Liberals at position 6.
    The prominent position and long ticket will likely increase the total number of votes Science receives on election day.
