Donation drive

NOTE: The main discussion thread has fallen down the page a little, to here.

At the end of every second month, this site rattles the tin to gently remind its valued readers of its reliance on their patronage. Among the things you might think I have done to deserve it lately:

• Published a super large guide to the March 23 New South Wales state election, which will only get bigger between now and polling day – and will soon be surpassed by an even bigger and even better guide to a federal election that will surely be held in May. Work on this is currently at an advanced stage.

• Covered the Cheltenham and Enfield by-elections in South Australia. Yeah, I know, boring — except for the invaluable opportunity it provided to further fine tune my election results reporting system, which moved one step closer to becoming the serious election watcher’s go-to source for live results on election night. See here for Cheltenham and here for Enfield – or better yet, see the full gamut of results from the Victorian election in November.

Donations are gratefully received via the PressPatron button at the top of the page, or the “become a supporter” buttons that appear at the foot of each post. If you are having technical problems with the donation facilities, please drop me a line at pollbludger-AT-bigpond-DOT-com.
