There was a slight swing away from Calare MP Andrew Gee, but he retained an overwhelming majority of voters' first preferences to claim another term at Saturday's federal election.
Mr Gee claimed 45.4 per cent of the first preference vote, ahead of Labor's Dr Jess Jennings (22 per cent) and Shooters, Fishers and Farmers candidate Sam Romano (17.5).
Soon after winning another term as the member for Calare, Andrew Gee said funding for aged care facilities was a priority.
"I have a lot of local projects I am keen to get off the ground," he said.
"It's issues like greater funding for aged care facilities. It's something I'm very passionate about. There are a number of others."
Mr Gee said solid economic management would enable such projects to occur.
"The budget is now in the black but we want to keep that good economic management going. When you do it you can deliver locally."
Mr Gee celebrated his victory at Orange City Bowling Club on Saturday night and, despite a 3.4 per cent drop in his vote, said he was gratified by the result.
"A lot of people had been predicting that our primary vote would basically collapse, and probably our opponents were hoping that it would, but we were really thrilled by the way our primary vote held up," he said.
The two-party preferred result remains unclear due to an anomaly on the the Australian Electoral Commission website.
Watching the results roll in at Bathurst on Saturday night, Dr Jess Jennings found positives in the result.
"I feel good that, regardless of how things turn out, I've given the voters of Calare a fair choice, an alternative," he said.
"It's not going to be a massive swing away from the Nats in terms of two party preferred, but it's not impossible that we don't do much better than what we had."
Shooters Fishers and Farmers party federal candidate Sam Romano says he will now hold the re-elected member for Calare Andrew Gee to his election promises.
