Liberal National Party: In July 2008, the Liberal Party and the National Party in Queensland agreed to merge to form a new party to contest state and federal elections, the Liberal National Party. This party is shown as 'Liberal National Party (Qld)' in the national summary for the Senate in this database.
Shooters Party: This party was registered for this election as the Shooters and Fishers Party; the original name -- Shooters Party -- has been retained for this database to permit comparison of the party's vote share between states and over time.
