Australia Votes 2013

With the federal election looming, there’s going to be lots of interesting data to play with, and I’ll be doing a bit of blogging of things that take my interest in the next couple of weeks.

To get started, I’ve been looking at the NSW Senate preferences. Currently the best source of information is this PDF from the AEC. If you’re interested in doing any analysis of this information, then you might prefer to have this in raw form.

I’ve scraped the data from its raw form and more it into a JSON file. Feel free to use this how you will, and let me know if you find any errors in it!
