Mudgee - By-election (Roll: n.a.)
Nominations: Friday, 7 March 1879, Polling: Friday, 7 March 1879 (No poll held)
Candidate Votes Votes %
Buchanan, David (Elected) Elected unopposed
Cause Category: Qualifications Committee
Notes: This is not a by-election but the substitution of David Buchanan in the seat won by Richard Rouse at the by-election on 6 January. Need to resolve what this one is about, but with Rouse having won by just a single vote, a challenge was always possible.
Source: See Elections and Qualifications Committee report, LAVP 1878-9, Vol A2 p.29. The committee examined a number of specific irreularities in polling and chose to reverse the result.
