About Election Watch

Election Watch is an initiative of the University of Melbourne devoted to expert political analysis and debate; to the exploration of vibrant democracy; and to explaining the mechanics of democratic process. In the past year Election Watch has launched projects focused on the 2013 Australian election, and the 2014 Indian and Indonesian campaigns. Now as the November 29 Victorian election looms, Election Watch draws on the resource of the University of Melbourne's experts to comment and analyse issues on their home turf, encouraging voters to engage deeply with the issues that shape their lives.

Election Watch brings together the University of Melbourne’s most respected and experienced academics to provide rigorous analysis and independent commentary on the Victorian election campaign — from political scientists and public policy experts to specialists in health, education and urban planning.
