Welcome to UniPollWatch, a unique exercise in cross-campus cooperation to cover the 2014 Victorian state election. Students at LaTrobe, Melbourne, RMIT and Swinburne Universities worked together to cover many of the most interesting electorates in the lead up to the poll on 29 November 2014. They provided analysis of the local issues and profiled the electorates and many of the candidates.

As far as we can tell, it was the first time four universities worked together to cover a state election. And now we’re planning to involve many more journalism schools to cover the 2016 federal election.
