Bradfield and Higgins by-elections. Live updates from the ground..

This post will be updated with live results starting at 6pm. For the moment I will update with stories from people at ground zero. All stories are coming from the people themselves and are either straight to me or found on Twitter. All twitter stories and photos will be linked to the original poster.

5:40pm - Just 20 minutes of voting left. Things have slowed right down on Twitter.

3:50pm - Just received news that a DLP booth worker was abusing other booth workers at Warrawee and had to be removed by police. #bradfield

3:30pm - 2 &1/2 hours left to vote. Should start to see a rush of voters again soon.

2:15pm - News coming through that Australian sex Party candidate Fiona Patten was pulled over by the police after complaints at the words "SEX PARTY" on the back of her campaign van.

1:30pm - (From simonsinger) Talking to friends and family in Higgins, many votes for Australian Sex Party. Numbers should be interesting. Top 3? #Higgins

Comment: The following is being handed out by the Sex Party in Bradfield. Pretty clever if you ask me.















11:55am - (From corduroy) Sex party booth worker gave Tony Abbott a condom in case he "gets lucky". Nice work. #bradfield

11:50am - Photos from Chrisquirk

 





















11:35am - (from Rrrrohan) Juvenile sex party volunteer in #higgins keeps putting VOTE 1 SEX stickers on Kelly's corflute face. Everyone hates him.

11:30am - Just talked to a friend handing out Green's How-to-vote's at Warrawee in Bradfield. He said all the booth workers have been friendly to each other and nobody has said anything rude to him about The Greens. The general feel is that The Greens will do well but Liberal will win.

10:40am - (From benraue) I'm pretty sure the Sex Party people are being paid. The woman couldn't say the party name without giggling #bradfield
