Harvey won the south Adelaide seat of Hawker as the Labor candidate at the 1987 federal election. Harvey was defeated for the same seat by Liberal Christine Gallus at the 1990 federal election by an extremely narrow 14 votes. Had just 14 Australian Democrats voters ranked Harvey higher than Gallus on next preferences, Harvey would have won.
Elizabeth has since worked as a ministerial staffer, public servant, teacher and writer. She has published on a blog her novel, Snowflake's Hope, a fictionalised account of her experiences as a Federal MP.
