Australian Senate election, 1970
Half-senate elections were held in Australia on 21 November 1970. This was the last time a Senate election was held with no accompanying election to the House of Representatives; the two election cycles had been out of synchronisation since 1963. The governing Coalition and the opposition Australian Labor Party won 26 seats each, while the Democratic Labor Party and three independents (two newly elected) held the remaining seats.
