Senate vs Hare-Clark

Over here in tikiwanderer's journal, zsero made the following comment in response to one of my own:

"Hardly. It's been in use for the Senate for the past 70 years or so, and is now also used for the upper houses of all states that have one, and for the ACT parliament.

For that matter, the system used for the House, and for almost all elections in Australia at every level, is really just a special case of Hare-Clark."

My response to that was long enough that it needed to be posted here instead. The boring bits about Australian elections are beneath the cut.

Anzac Day

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.
