Want candidate or seat information quickly? Our Seats and Candidates pages contain links to the most up-to-date and authoritative information supplied by the Electoral Commission and the politicians themselves.

Right from the very beginning
We've been analysing elections using focus groups and online qualitative polls since 2001, and we have a good track record of calling elections right. So good, in fact, that this year we're working in conjunction with The Australianwho realise the value of our approach. As a result some of our analysis will be published on The Australian's website first. Of course, all of our analysis will also be posted here.
While the electoral commission attempts to create all seats equal in size, not all seats are equal in importance. The electoral pendulum ranks seats in order of security. To view the pendulum click here.
