The guide covers the electorates of Goldstein, Higgins, Hotham, Kooyong, Melbourne Ports and Menzies.  These electorates are selected as they span the suburbs where Melbourne’s Jewish community are predominantly located.

Individual candidates’ positions are provided where known along with links to party and social media profiles.

    Candidates who were “stood down” or “dis-endorsed” after nominations closed and the ballot draw was fixed will still be on the ballot paper next to their former party logo and name.

      Yes, indeed. The Animal Justice Party candidate for Menzies is one such person. Is there anyone else in the guide who has been stood-down or disendorsed that you are aware of?

    Positive feedback already in on the Voters Guide from one happy voter:

    “I just wanted to send a big thank you for the excellent election candidate summary on your website.

    Marriage equality is an important election issue for me and your summary has aided me in deciding my preferences.

    Additionally, the links you have provided to each candidates website and/or Facebook page are excellent. To my surprise these aren’t even provided on the AEC’s website which is where I initially searched before turning to Google which lead me to your site.”
