Independents: The vote shown for independents at this Queensland Assembly election is the sum of votes cast for all candidates who ran for office without a registered party name. There were 52 such candidates.
Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party and One Nation: Since the party made its dramatic entry to Queensland politics at the 1998 Queensland Assembly election, the party had experienced considerable organization turmoil (see Ward in 'References', below) and declining electoral support. By 2004, the party had recast itself several times and was registered at this election as 'One Nation'. As Pauline Hanson campaigned for the party at this election, the original party name has been maintained in this database for this election to aid in comparison with the party's vote at previous elections and in other states.
