Election Leaflets

Election leaflets are one of the main weapons in the fight for votes in Australia. They are targeted, effective and sometimes very bitter. Yet, they are largely ignored by the mainstream media.

With Election Leaflets we asked people, instead of throwing those leaflets away, to scan or photograph them and upload them to the website or send the leaflets to us by post so that we could upload them.

For the first time election leaflets were searchable and available for everyone in Australia to view providing transparency on the tactics that the parties used. We launched the project just a few weeks before the 2010 federal election in which time over 600 leaflets were added from all across Australia.
