THE 2013 election marks the first significant decline in the Greens' federal vote since the party's foundation, but it's in Tasmania where the drop is most pronounced.
Tasmania - the birthplace of the modern Greens political movement - has always led all Australian states in its House of Representatives vote but was overtaken this year by both Victoria and Western Australia.
Senator Christine Milne put a positive spin on the result on election day, saying "Victoria is becoming quite a big anchor point for the Greens around the country", but Tasmania taking up a smaller share of the party room will have a large impact on the local party's dominance.
As of July 1 next year, Victoria will send the most Green representatives to Canberra with two senators and Melbourne MHR Adam Bandt against Tasmania's Senators Milne and Peter Whish- Wilson.
Equally concerning for the Greens will be the ramifications for 2014's state poll.
The party has polled strongest in Tasmania after good federal results and the drop of more than 3 per cent in primary vote could spell trouble for Tasmanian leader Nick McKim.
Note: 2013 results correct at recent counting - final figures confirmed later this month
