Swinburne Journalism is leading the 2016 UniPollWatch project, bringing together the journalism schools at around twenty Australian universities to cover the 2016 federal election.

This is the first time that so many universities have worked together to cover a national election. Each university will report on several House of Representatives electorates and contribute to one website, hosted at Swinburne University.

The project builds on the pioneering work of the 2014 coverage of the Victorian state election, where four Victorian universities covered the state election: www.unipollwatch.org.au
