Australian Greens Vote Results.
A discussion on the news today, (14 April 2022), where the interviewer of a Greens member questioned the statement that the Greens Vote is constantly increasing.
- The Greens member said that the Greens Vote is constantly increasing.
- The interviewer said that the Greens Vote is constant at around 10%.
Are both right?
The actual Federal Election numbers, for the last 6 elections.
- 2019: 1,482,923 votes. 10.40% 1 seat.
- 2016: 1,385,650 votes. 10.23% 1 seat.
- 2013: 1,116,918 votes. 8.65% 1 seat.
- 2010: 1,458,998 votes. 11.76% 1 seat.
- 2007: 967,789 votes. 7.79% 0 seats.
- 2004: 841,734 votes. 7.19% 0 seats.
Looking at those numbers it is clear that their vote numbers have increased, although not every year. They had a rather large drop in 2013.
If we look at the last two elections, both are right, with the Greens increasing, but still only around 10%.
If we look back to 2004, then the Greens Vote has risen from 7.19% to 10.4%.
If we compare 2019 to 2010, then we see a drop from 11.76% to 10.4%, but an increase in votes, due to higher population.
In 2019 there were 16,419,543 registered voters, of which 1,482,923 voted for the Greens party.
In 2010 there were 14,086,869 registered voters, of which 1,458,998 voted for the Greens party.
