MyPolitician enables you to search the profiles of all the Federal Australian politicians, (candidates for election too, when the elections are on), and, in the future, State politicians.
You can quickly locate statistical and contextual information about politicians in your electorate and compare them with other politicians across the country.
This site is designed to provide alternate methods to rate politicians than more traditional methods. Day to day, politicians have a choice to utilise technology to communicate with the members of their constituencies. Whether they do that or not is something we try to monitor and promote.
Ultimately the long term view is to change the way voters in Australia view their role in local politics. Should it be about the party view, or how well your sitting Member or Senate representative stands up for your electorate? Most likely it is a balance between both, however not enough is being shown over the length of their tenure to rate and provide feedback on how people feel they are doing.
Our upcoming user rating system will provide a different snapshot on how well the electorate views the individual performance. We look forward to sharing with the voters of Australia balanced separate ways to view data than that provided by old traditional media sources that still offer their biased perspective on our political system.
