Time for the Poll Bludger’s bi-monthly* undignified grovel for financial support from its valued readership. The ongoing election drought notwithstanding, the site has a busy two months ahead of it thanks to the October 14 Indigenous Voice referendum, which will be covered here with regular updates and at least some sort of facility on the big night for publishing live results and, if I can think of a plausible way of going about it, projecting results at state level based on the progress totals. If that sounds deserving of a contribution, you can make one through the “become a supporter” buttons that you’ll find at the top of the page and the bottom of each post.

* An ambiguous term that annoyingly lacks a good alternative, but by which I mean once every two months and not twice a month.
