Interactive Election Scenario Builder

Which Way Do You Swing?

For this piece of data journalism we built an Electorate Calculator based on data from polling results.

We allowed AFR readers to ‘stage their own election’, by seeing how much an overall national swing would impact the number of seats that changed hands. Starting from the predicted outcome and the latest polls, people can create your own election scenarios with the scenario builder.

Visualise the outcome by state or by margin: swing percentages can be adjusted for each group. On-demand information about the electorate and key candidates is built in.

This project is a on-going collaboration with data journalist Edmund Tadros and the team of journalists and researchers at the Australian Financial Review. We’ve done a lot of work with this team, for example our polling explorer visualisation that allows readers to really dig into the polling data.
