Articles from The Tally Room
In this episode, I talk to El Gibbs and Paddy Manning about the Victorian election, with a particular focus on inner-city Greens contests.
This was the first episode recorded at the studios of 2SER radio in Sydney. Thanks to them for the help with the show.
Now that we’re past Wentworth, I wanted to revisit the election guides I have posted for the federal and Victorian state elections.
There are a whole bunch of extra candidates on both guides (particularly Victoria), and I have also listed all the candidates in spreadsheets if you are interested.
Particular thanks to Nick Casmirri who has helped track down a lot of extra candidates.
Ben is joined by William Bowe and Georgia Tkachuk to discuss the Wentworth by-election and to begin discussing the Victorian state election.
For those who haven’t already noticed, I wanted to let you know that the guide to the next federal election is now finished and up on the website in total.
The guide includes profiles of all 151 House of Representatives races, and all eight Senate contests.

There has been a lot of discussion recently about the lack of representation of women in the Liberal Party, and it got me thinking about what sort of seats tend to be represented by women. Do they tend to hold safer seats, or more marginal seats?

I’ve just added two more datasets to the Tally Room data repository.
These datasets cover the results of the recent Tasmanian and South Australian state elections, including candidate lists, booth lists, and voting figures at the booth and seat level:
