ilovebrokenhill.com , was first published on 8 December 2011 by Jane Deany. My blog is all about the famous outback Australian National Heritage Listed City named Broken Hill, located in the state of New South Wales. I first visited #BrokenHill in 2002 and have returned many times since then. ilovebrokenhill.com will help you discover what's great about this historic mining city, where in the mid 1880's the line of lode, a rich ore body of silver, lead and zinc was found. You will find stories about anything related to Broken Hill.

Broken Hill 2012 Local Government Elections-Results Not Yet Final

My information was sourced from here.
Note final results can be found here on a later post.
Local Government
Preliminary figures.  Please note my reporting of the results is unofficial and counting is incomplete.  I have taken my information from the Electoral Commission NSW.  It is my reporting of the summary of the first preference figures as they are presented on that site at the time of this post i.e. 9 September 2012-today. There are still preferences to be counted that could influence the final result, so it is still too early to tell who the final winners are.

13,591 people were entitled to vote as at 30 July 2012.  Voters are however entitled to enrol up to and including the election day.  The progressive total of ordinary votes is 11,236 votes counted at the time of writing.  Of these, there are 9,157 formal votes and 2,079 informal votes.

Late last tonight, Sunday 9 September 2012, I noticed that there had been quite a lot of readers for my last night’s post regarding the election results and as there has been some variation in the order of the rankings to date, I have updated my interim results list – see below.  I am issuing this update due to these changes, but I won’t continue to do so until the final results are in.  I have just listed the top 12 names, in order of the number of votes tallied to date per candidate and obviously doesn’t include preference votes.


Electoral Commission returning-officer Mr Darren Flowers noted counting will continue from Monday morning and will take three to four days to complete.

Please wait for the final results before you start to celebrate or drown your sorrows.

Names in bold are existing Councillors.

I will report the final results when they are available.
