Liberal Sarah Henderson has claimed victory in the federal seat of Corangamite, in a close election that keeps the electorate marginal.

Ms Henderson yesterday led Labor candidate Libby Coker in the vote count, with 52.66 per cent of the two-party-preferred vote, compared with Ms Coker’s 47.34 per cent.

The figure, with 74.35 per cent of votes counted, indicated a swing to Labor of 1.28 percentage points.

“I’m very humbled and honoured to be elected for a second term as the Member for Corangamite,” Ms Henderson said.

“I’m incredibly proud of our hard work over the last three years and I look forward to continuing to stand up and deliver for the people of Corangamite over the next three years,” she said.
