The VEC finally finished counting votes for the Seat of Mallee and officially announced Ali Cupper the succesful candidate.

Cupper resigned from her position as a Councillor with Mildura Rural City Council and is now concentrating on her role as an MP. 

Cupper's position on the Council will be filled via a countback in the same manner as that undertaken to replace the late Cr Max Thorburn. The process should see another Councillor elected in January 2019.
