Angus Taylor has officially been re-elected as the Member for Hume after today’s Declaration of the Polls at the Goulburn AEC office.
Accordingly, under the provisions of section 284 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act, the AEC’s division returning officer “duly elected” Mr Taylor as the member to serve in the House of Representatives for the division of Hume.
Mr Taylor used the Declaration of the Polls announcement to thank the hardworking Hume AEC team.
“The AEC play an absolutely critical role in upholding our democracy, he said.
“Today, I particularly wanted to thank the Hume AEC team, who have worked incredibly hard through what has been a long and challenging federal election campaign.
“I thank all of the candidates who stood in Hume and all the supporters and community members who gave so much of their time during this campaign.”
