Results are coming through slowly now – There is going to be minimal changes from here, so I’m calling it for the evening, I’ll pop in again in an hour or so and update one more time, but results as of 11:15pm below:

Thanks for all the comments and fun tonight, been a big swing to left wing parties this election. Stay safe.

Congratulations to the Ardern Labour government for their huge win tonight. Final results will be announced in a couple of weeks after special votes have been counted and tallied, but I think we can see where this election has gone.
