The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) has authorised the full payment of election funding to political parties and candidates for votes received at the New England by‑election.
The total amount of election funding for the by-election is $205,443.03. Payments have been made to three parties and one independent candidate.
This first round of payments was based on the progressive vote count as at close of business on Wednesday 20 December 2017. The AEC paid up to 99 per cent of the funding entitlements calculated at that date.
A second and final round of payments of all outstanding funding entitlements has now been made based on the finalised vote count.
