Seats To Watch-Australian Capital Territory
How is status defined?
Seat status is based on the two-party preferred vote count (TPP). The two-party preferred vote refers to the number of votes received by the Labor and Coalition candidates after a full distribution of preferences.
The AEC classifies seats using the following business rules: when a party receives less than 56 % of the vote the seat is classified as ‘marginal’ (M); between 56-60 % it is classified as ‘fairly safe’ (FS) and more than 60 % is classified ‘safe’ (S).
