My guide for the Batman by-election is now published!
Included in the guide is an electorate profile and history, graphs showing the historical voting trend since the 1970s (including a visualization of the rather impressive rise of the Greens since the 1996 Federal Election, when they first stood a candidate) and maps showing the two party preferred vote and swings to/against the Greens, by polling place, at the 2016 Federal Election.
Candidate profiles and biographies are also included.
