WA election results: Polls closed, counting begins with Labor expected to win in landslide

The polls are now closed in Western Australia and the counting of votes has begun.

With Premier Mark McGowan expected to comfortably lead Labor to a second term, the focus is on how many seats the already-depleted Liberals can save.

There are 59 seats in the Legislative Assembly.

Winning 30 will grant one party government.

There weren’t as many pre-polls as predicted, so both leaders spent Saturday morning pleading for voters to choose them.

755,000 West Australians on the electoral roll took advantage of the opportunity to vote early or by post.

That left a million voters who needed to cast their vote on Saturday.
