Payments made to parties after 2010 election.

This spreadsheet is in response to a post on Facebook about compulsory. I'm using it to show why the parties probably aren't to keen to get rid of compulsory voting while we have the current public funding model - to receive funding a candidate must receive at least 4% of the first preference vote (single electorate or senate race, not nation-wide) The amount paid per vote for the 2010 election was 231.191 cents.
