One ballot paper was ruled invalid.

Today's turnout of the Ukrainian citizens residing in Australia was lower than in the first round of the Ukrainian presidential election, when 125 people (7.2%) arrived at the polling sites. Poroshenko was also in the lead of the Australian vote then.

"We are thankful to everyone who came, drove or flew to Canberra today to take part in the voting. We thank the district election commission for coordinated work and professionalism," the embassy said.
