Seat of the day: Wagga Wagga

I’ve been steadily posting one seat guide every day. This week I’ve been posting guides to the respective Senate races, and then hopefully I’ll follow those up with federal Victorian seat guides (although I may need to post a few Victorian state seats to bridge the gap) but I’ve decided to prioritise one seat which has been in the news.

The NSW state seat of Wagga Wagga is normally considered a very safe Liberal seat. There is now some doubt about whether the sitting MP Daryl Maguire will finish the last eight months of his term after resigning from the party following recent findings at ICAC. If there is a by-election, I will convert this seat guide into a by-election guide, but for now it’s the sixth NSW state seat guide I’ve posted.

[EDIT: Gladys Berejiklian has now announced that Maguire will be resigning next week, so the link is now the guide to the by-election.]

Read the guide to Wagga Wagga.

You can see the list of all NSW state seat guides here. My plan at the moment is to post the rest of the guide after the Victorian state election in November, but if you would really like to see a particular seat you can make a request if you donate $5 or more per month via Patreon.


This week’s guides – April 5

Since last week’s post, I have published seven more guides. This includes the next five most marginal federal seats, as well as one donor request each for the Victorian and NSW state elections.

The federal seats are:

I’ve also published guides to the state seat of Shepparton in Victoria and Goulburn in NSW, both on the request of new patreon donors.

I’ll keep publishing one guide per day, and you can see the most recent guides on the right-hand sidebar or on each guide’s front page. If you’d like to see a seat prioritised, you can make a request if you donate $5 or more per month via Patreon.

I’m expecting a change of pace tomorrow with the publication of the draft federal boundaries in Victoria and the ACT (South Australia is due in April, but we don’t have a date). So keep an eye out for that.
