Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party and One Nation At the 2004 Senate election, some state branches of the Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party campaigned under the party label One Nation (as in Queensland). The original party name has been maintained in this database to permit comparison of voting figures over time and between states.
Independents and Pauline Hanson: The vote shown for Independents at this Senate election is the sum of votes cast for candidates who ran for the Senate a member of a group without a registered party name, or who ran as ungrouped candidates.
Pauline Hanson had split from the Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party before the 2004 Senate election, and ran with another candidate at the 2004 Senate election as a group which did not register a party name (group K 'Unendorsed - Hanson/Smith' on the 2004 Queensland Senate ballot paper). This group won 102,824 votes (4.5 percent) at the 2004 Senate election in Queensland; these votes are included with 'Independents' in the table above.
