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.


Election guide update – some long weekend reading

As flagged earlier this week, I’ve now started work on the guides to the next federal election, along with the upcoming state elections in New South Wales and Victoria.

I threw it open to those people donating to my Patreon to nominate seats they wished to see prioritised, and I had 13 responses. I’ve written all these guides, and I’ll post their links below so you can all have a read over the coming weekend.

If you’d like to request a seat, you can do so if you donate $5 or more per month via Patreon.*

I’ll be writing more guides (aiming for 5 per week) and will be doing weekly posts with links, but in the meantime all of the links are going up on the front page of each guide and the sidebar will feature the 10 most recent seats for each election.

Federal election:

  1. Ryan
  2. Eden-Monaro
  3. Dickson
  4. Sydney
  5. Capricornia
  6. Gilmore

Victorian election:

  1. Northcote
  2. Richmond
  3. South Barwon

NSW election:

  1. Ballina
  2. East Hills
  3. Heffron
  4. Bega

*I’m not currently doing guides for federal seats in Victoria, South Australia or the ACT due to the impending redistributions.


You tell me which seats to profile…

Now that the elections of March are mostly concluded, I’ve shifted my focus to my guides to the federal election and the state elections in Victoria and New South Wales.

There won’t be many elections in the next few months, so the front page of this website may look quiet, but there’ll be a lot of work going on in the background.

I’m going to start picking seats to profile, and I’ll be doing weekly posts listing all the guides posted in that week.

If you’d like me to prioritise a seat, you now have that option.

All you have to do is sign up as a patron of this blog via Patreon, giving at least $5 per month. Each $5 donor is welcome to request a particular seat to be contested at any of these three elections (excluding federal seats in Victoria, South Australia and the ACT), and I’ll aim to complete that guide and publish it within the next week.
