Election Leaflets Australia – a new tool to ‘keep the bastards honest’

The eDemocracy project Open Australia Foundation just launched electionleaflets.org.au – which lets people upload election leaflets they receive, or search to see election materials in their electorate (or any electorate). This is the latest project from OpenAustralia.org – a non-party political eDemocracy group.

The purpose of this project is to shed light on local campaign stunts, and hold our politicians up to to national and media scrutiny.

It got written up in the SMH/Age today. Dirty Tricks Police.

They’re also sharing their archive with the National Library – so this stuff wil be permanently archived – very cool.

Please consider uploading (or emailing, or posting) any leaflets you receive to the site. Thank you!
