1901 results in South Australia and Tasmania

This is a static page of results tables. South Australia and Tasmania were multi-member electorates for the 1901 election. To make the statistics easier, I therefore excluded both states from all statistics calculated elsewhere, and instead am presenting their results tables on this separate page.

South Australia

South Australia used bloc voting: voters could vote for up to seven candidates, and the seven candidates with the most votes were elected. Sources differ as to the turnout and informal voting; I am basing my figures on the tables in The Register, 10 April, p6, and The Chronicle, 13 April, p36. (The latter has a breakdown of all results by state electorate, which may be of interest.)
