Nominations will be declared at midday today for the Wentworth by-election. I’m going to drop by the ballot draw in Sydney and will update the candidate list on my seat guide in the early afternoon.
As of this morning I’m aware of at least thirteen candidates, who are all listed on the seat guide.
I’ve been a bit quiet over recent weeks as I’ve been focusing on seat guides but I’m going to start doing more active blogging as we head into the Wentworth by-election and Victorian state election.
In the meantime, please use this as a thread to discuss the candidate nominations today.
