2007 Australian Federal Election Final Result.

The Australian 2007 Federal Election was held on 24th November 2007

There were 13,646,539 eligible voters on the day, and 12,930,814 (or 94.76%) of them voted.
Voting is compulsory in Australia, and those without a valid reason to not vote would have received a fine for not voting.

Only 12,419,992 of the votes were considered valid, with 510,822 of the votes deemed inadmissible for various reasons.
Some voters, who do not wish to vote, but do not want to pay the fine for not voting, attend the voting poll, but spoil their ballot paper in one of various ways, to purposefully register a vote that does not count.

The Australian Labor Party won the election, with Kevin Rudd elected as the next Prime Minister of Australia.

John Howard, the previous Prime Minister for 11 years and 37 weeks from March 1996, lost his seat and left politics after this election.
