The Victorian State Election is scheduled for 26th November 2022. The incumbent Labor government is seeking a successive 3rd term.
2022 has been a good year for the Labor Party in Australia. After 15 years, the Labor Party came to power in Australia. Australia saw a change in power after 15 years. Two months before the Federal election, the ALP led by Peter Malinauskas won the 2022 South Australian state election beating Premier Steven Marshall and his Liberal Party.
If the Labor Party is able to retain Victoria, this would mean a complete rout of the Liberal party and its coalition in Australia.

Victorian Opinion Polls 2022: Observations and Insights
- The Liberal Coalition has made some gains but not enough to win the election.
- Green Party may poll more than what it had in the last election.
- The top two parties have lost their preference among the voters. In 2018, around 78% of the voters voted for the two parties but in 2022 the top two parties may poll 71% of the total votes.
- The Labor Party will emerge as the single largest party but is unlikely to get a majority.
- The Labor Party may poll around 5-6% less than their 2018 vote share.
- The leader of the Liberal Coalition, Matthew Guy continues to struggle among women, and with more female voters in the voting population, this makes the task that much more difficult.
- The latest poll suggests that the Coalition needs a very small swing to force Labor to form a Minority Government.
Race tightens between Andrews and Guy

Latest Victorian Opinion Polls 2022: Election Procedure and the Tenure
Victoria follows a compulsory voting system which means that all eligible citizens need to register and vote in the election. In case of failure to vote, the citizens may be subjected to a penalty if in case they are unable to furnish a valid reason for absenteeism.
In Victoria, the instant runoff voting method is followed. It is a kind of ranked preferential voting method. The majority voting rule is used to determine the single winner. The candidates are ranked by the voters with respect to their preferences. If a candidate has more than 50% of the 1st preference vote, the candidate is declared the winner. Else if there are more than 2 candidates and none gets 50% 1st preference votes, the candidates with few votes are eliminated first and their votes are added to the top two candidates on the basis of their preference.
The process continues until one candidate has more than half of the preference votes and finally the winner is declared.
The Victorian Legislative has a total of 88 seats. For the majority, a party or a coalition needs to win a minimum of 45 seats. On November 26th, the Victorians will vote to elect the 60th Parliament of Victoria. The term of each Parliament is of 4 years whereas the Federal Government of Australia is only for 3 years.
