I count on counting to be sooner than at a federal election, as there’s only one query with a sure/no response, not a number of candidates. Ordinary votes solid at election day or pre-poll cubicles ought to be counted on election evening. Postal and absent votes will likely be counted within the following weeks.
For a referendum to succeed, it requires a majority in at the very least 4 of the six states in addition to a nationwide majority. Polls suggest there isn’t any lifelike likelihood of a nationwide “sure” majority, so the double majority is a moot level.
A nationwide Newspoll, carried out October 3–6 from a pattern of 1,225, gave “no” to the Voice a 58–34 lead, out from 56–36 within the earlier Newspoll, two weeks in the past. With the 8% undecided excluded, “no” led by 63–37.
Here is the up to date 2023 Voice polls graph. It contains the most recent polls from Newspoll, Resolve, Morgan and YouGov (just one level to this point for YouGov). In Resolve and final week’s Essential, “sure” has gained floor, however in different polls “sure” continues to fall.
Labor led by 53–47 on voting intentions, a one-point achieve for the Coalition. Primary votes had been 36% Coalition (regular), 34% Labor (down two), 12% Greens (up one), 5% One Nation (down one) and 13% for all Others (up two).
Anthony Albanese’s scores had been 46% dissatisfied (up two) and 45% glad (down two), for a web approval of -1. After slumping to web -20 within the earlier Newspoll, Peter Dutton’s web approval jumped seven factors to -13. Albanese’s lead as higher PM was diminished to 50–33, from 50–30 beforehand, its narrowest for the reason that election.
Here is a graph of Albanese’s web approval in Newspoll, displaying the continued drop in his scores since late 2022.
Large-sample Resolve ballot provides ‘no’ a 56–44 lead
A nationwide Resolve ballot for Nine newspapers was carried out over two weeks (September 22 to October 4) from a pattern of 4,728. This pattern is about 3 times Resolve’s regular pattern of 1,600.

Tasmania was the one state the place “sure” led, by 56–44. In New South Wales, “no” led by 52–48, in Victoria by 54–46, in SA by 55.5–44.5, in WA by 61–39 and in Queensland “no” led by 64–36.
This state knowledge means that if “sure” by some means received over 50% in Saturday’s outcomes, “sure” would win majorities in 4 states by including six factors to the present “sure” vote in each state, and so a double majority may very well be attained with SA the important thing state. But it’s very unrealistic to count on such a end result.
This is the primary achieve for “sure” in Resolve’s Voice polls since April, when the “sure” lead elevated from 57–43 in March to 58–42. By June, “no” was forward by 51–49, and the “no” lead elevated to 57–43 in September.
A key theme of the “no” marketing campaign has been “should you don’t know vote no”. In this ballot, 29% mentioned they had been joyful to solid their poll on the ideas of the Voice with out realizing the design, whereas 60% wished extra data.
