Christian Democratic Party candidate Tom Arentz said that while he was disappointed with his primary vote, he was pleased to have been part of the democratic process.
Mr Arentz polled about 1.9 per cent of of the primary vote, and by Sunday afternoon had 876 votes.
Compared to the results at the 2015 general election, that was a drop of .49 per cent
The Greens’ Ray Goodlass got about 2.77 per cent, with 1310 primary votes so far counted.
Compared with 2015, that’s a drop of 2.23 per cent.
Mr Goodlass told The Daily Advertiser on Saturday that he felt recognition of both the party and himself as a candidate had been high.
There were at least 1555 informal votes by Sunday afternoon.
Counting is continuing and it could be several days before the result of the election is known.
