UPDATE, 11AM: The Electoral Commission Queensland (ECQ) is in the process of fixing the error and has now taken down the two-party preferred vote from their site.

 

EARLIER: The Count in the seat of Lockyer was stuffed up by the Electoral Commission Queensland (ECQ) on their website earlier today, Cr Paul Tully says.

This morning the ECQ site had the two-party preferred count as a contest between the LNP's Ian Rickuss and Katter's Australian Party (KAP) candidate David Neuendorf when it should have been between the LNP and One Nation's Pauline Hanson.

Mr Rickuss had polled 33.06% of the primary vote with Ms Hanson in second spot on 27.6% of the primary vote after 71.76% of the count.

Mr Neuendorf had only 7.51% of the primary vote and was well behind.

Cr Paul Tully, one of Queensland's leading election experts, sent ABC election analyst Antony Green a message to alert him to the error.

"The ECQ has got the two-party  preferred figure entirely wrong in Lockyer," Cr Tully said.

"They have the final contest as being between the LNP and KAP when it is really between the LNP and One Nation parties.

"To show how stupid their mistake is, in the two party preferred final figure they have got Ian Rickuss on  7130 votes, when he actually received 7809 primary votes."
