10:02 a.m. David is talking about the survey, how it was carried out and assures that Australians can have faith in the accuracy of the vote.

10:03 a.m. He confirms the number of voters. 12,727,920 people voted — 79 percent of the vote. Older voters were more vocal than young ones, "but not markedly so." Shoutout to the lovely lady relaying the news for our hearing-impaired Aussies.
