TOTAL: 0 (-3)
AVP Angry Victorians Party
Western Metropolitan MLC Catherine Cumming, elected as a member of Derryn Hinch's Justice Party before being sworn in as an independent then unsuccessfully trying to register the Independence Party, has lost her seat.
In the upper house count, the AVP received one of the lowest amount of primary votes for any party statewide.
AJP Animal Justice Party
The party's sitting MLC, Andy Meddick (Western Victoria Region), is gone - but it's not all bad news for the AJP, with Georgie Purcell set to pick up a seat in the Northern Victoria Region.
After some hopes of picking up 1 or 2 lower house seats if they "got lucky," they have not won any despite contesting all 88.
DLP Democratic Labour Party
The DLP didn't pick up any seats at the 2018 election but contested this election with 1 MP - Bernie Finn, who was originally in the Liberals before being kicked out earlier this year.
Adem Somyurek, who became an independent in 2020, resigned from the legislative council just weeks out from the election but did contest Northern Metropolitan for the DLP, instead of his original seat of South-Eastern Metropolitan.
DHJP Derryn Hinch's Justice Party
Derryn Hinch's Justice Party was the most successful minor party in the upper house in 2018, picking up 3 seats (although Catherine Cumming left the party before being sworn in).
Both remaining MPs - Tania Maxwell (Northern Victoria) and Stuart Grimley (Western Victoria) - have lost their seats, while party founder & former senator Derryn Hinch did not get win in South-Eastern Metropolitan.
LCP Legalise Cannabis Party
Coming off 2 wins in the WA upper house in 2021 & a good result in the senate in May, Legalise Cannabis looks set to win 2 seats in Victoria.
LDP Liberal Democrats
The Liberal Democrats have, at the very least, increased their upper house vote - but the party might lose both its MPs, being Tim Quilty (Northern Victoria) and David Limbrick (South-Eastern Metropolitan).
NDP New Democrats
The New Democrats have lost their only MP, Kaushaliya Vaghela (Western Metropolitan), and are on track to receive the lowest vote of any party running in the upper house.
PHON Pauline Hanson's One Nation
One Nation is likely to win in the Northern Victoria Region after not contesting the 2018 state election.
RP Reason Party
Reason is attempting to hold onto their only MP, Fiona Patten, who represents the Northern Metropolitan Region.
SFF Shooters, Fishers and Farmers
Sitting MLC Jeff Bourman will retain his seat in Eastern Victoria, but the party won't regain the seat of Northern Victoria that they lost in 2018.
SAP Sustainable Australia Party
Southern Metropolitan MLC Clifford Hayes has lost his seat, with the SAP down around 0.3% in the statewide upper house vote.
TMP Transport Matters Party
Transport Matters MP Rod Barton, elected with just a 0.62% primary vote in 2018, has lost in the North-Eastern Metropolitan Region. The TMP has one of the lowest statewide primary votes for any party running in the upper house.

IND A1 Independent (AustraliaOne-endorsed): No A1-endorsed candidates successful in getting elected.
IND CON Independent (Conservative-affiliated): Vern Hughes is a director at the Civil Society, which has backed The Conservative Party, a party Hughes himself is promoting on social media - therefore it can be concluded he is affiliated with them (however he lated pulled out of the election & therefore no affiliated candidates ran).

IND IAPA Independent (Indigenous-Aboriginal Party-endorsed): Party unsuccessful in getting registered, no endorsed independent candidates won.
IND SA Independent (Socialist Alliance-endorsed): Party was not registered, no endorsed independent candidates won.
