We’re now less than five weeks away from the NSW state election, and I have just finished updating the candidate lists for my NSW state election guide, as well as updating the equivalent lists on my federal election guide.
As usual I have shared these lists of candidates as Google spreadsheets, which you can view here:
Thanks to Nick Casmirri, who has done a great deal of research work to find candidates, as well as everyone who has posted a comment on a seat guide.
These lists are of course works in progress, with candidates continuing to reveal themselves up until nominations close on March 6.
374 candidates have been announced for the NSW state election, which is an average of just over 4 candidates per seat. There are 8 announced candidates in Penrith, and there are only two announced candidates in nine seats.
Labor has announced candidates in ninety seats, the Greens in 81 seats, there are a total of 80 coalition candidates, and the Animal Justice Party are running 42. There are also 18 Shooters, Fishers and Farmers candidates and One Nation and the Christian Democratic Party have each announced nine candidates.
