Volunteers at re-elected Rankin MP Jim Chalmers' election night event were in high spirits following the Shadow Treasurer's victory.
Adam, an organiser for the Australian Labor Party said he was confident Dr Chalmers would retain his seat but was unsure of the national result.
"Jim has a safe seat in Rankin," he said.
"I think the country as a whole is looking interesting, but I think Labor might pull ahead."
The current count by the ABC has Labor on 65 seats and the LNP on 46.
First time campaign volunteer Charlotte, who is still several years away from voting, said the whole experience had been exciting.
"I was very excited," she said.
"Everyone was fairly nice to me, I only got rejected a couple of times talking to people."
The re-elected MP was confident in predicting an ALP victory, but warned the assembled crowd that it might be a long time before the result is known.
"I have some good news and bad news," Dr Chalmers said.
"The good news is I think we've seen the end of Scott Morrison.
"The more difficult news is there's a lot more votes to count before we know if this will be a majority Labor government or a minority situation. We might not know for a day or two."
Dr Chalmers also said, should the Australian Labor Party form government, he would remain focused on achieving results in his local community.
"I won't consider myself the Treasurer who happens to come from Logan," he said.
"I will always consider myself a Logan kid who happens to be the Treasurer."
