The primary vote saw the Coalition win two seats, Labor win two seats and the Greens win one seat, leaving Labor leading for the final seat with a comfortable majority ahead of the Coalition, Family First, DLP and Australian Sex Party. It ended up being a tight race for the final senate seat in Victoria, with preferences from One Nation and the Christian Democrats saw the DLP move ahead of Family First into third place, but Australian Democrat and Liberal Democrat preferences saw the DLP getting overtaken by the Sex Party. However, the Sex Party was overtaken once again by the DLP's Family First preferences, and Sex Party preferences saw the DLP move into second place ahead of the Coalition, whose preferences allowed the DLP to overtake Labor to secure the sixth seat. The final results were two seats Coalition, two seats Labor, one seat Green and one seat Democratic Labor.[4]

Primary votes saw the Liberals and Labor both win two seats and the Greens win one, which left Labor ahead of the Greens and the Liberals. It is possible that Liberal preferences may have pushed the Greens ahead of Labor, which would've led to them taking the final seat, but Shooters and Fishers preferences meant that the Liberals ended up ahead of the Greens, and Labor ended up taking the seat with Green preferences. The final result was three seats Labor, two seats Liberal and one seat Green.[8]
