We've had so many questions about the election, particularly about how elections work and ways to make sure your vote counts. So we dragged the ABC's election guru Antony Green into the studio to get him to answer them all. * Are preference deals between parties required anymore? * What does voting 1 to 6 above the line mean? When should you vote below the line? * What is an invalid vote and how do I make sure it doesn't happen? * How does Antony know a seat has been won when only 5 per-cent of votes have been counted? * Is Antony's computer or Antony's brain doing all the work?
