Welcome to AusVotes 2019, a group blog devoted to making sense of the madness that is the 2019 Australian federal election.

This is the third successive federal election covered by the AusVotes blog.

AusVotes 2019 is a collaboration of more than 30 writers, some that you’ll recognise immediately and some that will probably be new.

We come from many different backgrounds, tapping into a range of disciplines and experience to offer readers insights and explanations of the 2019 campaign including policies, the parties and some of the key electorates.

Our writers may differ in philosophical and political views, but we have one thing in common – dedication to providing AusVotes 2019 readers with informative political analysis and thought-provoking commentary during the campaign.

However no blog is complete without you, the reader. We hope you will also participate by leaving comments on the blog and sharing/discussing your favourite posts on Twitter and Facebook.
