Breaking down the election cheat sheet

October 18th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Here are some possible section headers for the Election Cheat Sheet… I found the keywords by visiting each party’s policy section… (ALP, Family First, Greens, Liberal, Nationals) Sure this would be way too many sections, but I thought it would be a good starting point. If you think there is a section header missing, post it in the comments!

October 18th, 2007 · No Comments

The idea of an election cheat sheet is to get a broad overview of the various political parties (both major and minor) on a comparison table.

Ideally the cheat sheet will be together at least two weeks out from the election. The information required could be sourced from:
