Australia: Good voting weather; hung parliament likely

It’s still winter, which isn’t the best season to have an election in.  Rain or cold weather = lower voter turn out. 

But the weather on Saturday couldn’t have been better for Australians getting out to vote. 

Weather for most voters was fantastic from coast to coast.

As of 12:30am NZT Sky News New Zealand was saying the election was too close to call and that a hung parliament was most likely.
