Alison Anderson elected unopposed

Alison Anderson has won the seat of Macdonnell unopposed at the 2008 Territory election.  There is no voting in this seat as she was the only nominating candidate. 

Malcolm Mackerras writes in crikey.com:

At the November 1963 House of Representatives only general election John Norman Nelson (Labor) was returned unopposed for the Northern Territory. It then went entirely out of fashion for any member of the House of Representatives to be returned unopposed.

However, unopposed returns continued at state elections. In South Australia in March 1965 there were unopposed returns in Albert, Angas and Light. In Queensland in May 1966 there were unopposed returns in Mackenzie and Warrego. In New South Wales in September 1981 there was an unopposed return in South Coast. In Western Australia in February 1983 there was an unopposed return in Narrogin.
