See the Glossary of this website for information on Senate elections and details of the distinction between Seats won by ticket and Seats won by party, and between Seats won and Seats held.

The party label Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party was changed to One Nation in some states. The original party name has been maintained in this database to permit easy comparison over time and between states.
