This is a blog by Ben Raue. I’m a former Greens candidate in south-west Sydney. I have a particular interest in politics, and particularly elections, in Australia and other english-speaking countries.
You can contact me by emailing ben(at)tallyroom.com.au, although if you can please comment on the relevant blog post. You can also follow me on twitter @benraue.
I have written election analysis for Crikey.com.au and appeared on ABC radio 774 Melbourne. I am interested in, and available for, opportunities to provide election analysis for those elections I am following, providing an Australian perspective on elections across the world. My Google Earth election maps have also been used as part of CNN International’s coverage of the 2010 UK general election.
While I’m an active member of the Greens, this blog is neither a tell-all blog about the inner workings of the Greens, nor is it a blog that gives psephology a Greens spin. This doesn’t stop me from having a particular interest in psephology in relation to the Greens, but I believe I treat these issues fairly. In my day job I work part-time for a Greens senator.
I do not publish information I have gathered through privileged channels of the Greens. This blog is not here to publish news first-hand, it’s an electoral analysis blog.
