UniPollWatch 2018

UniPollWatch is an exercise in cross-campus cooperation to cover the 2018 Victorian state election. Students at LaTrobe, Melbourne, RMIT, Monash, Deakin and Swinburne Universities are working together to cover many of the most interesting electorates in the lead up to the poll on 24 November 2014.

This is the third time university journalism programs have cooperated to cover an election. The first was in 2014 for the Victorian state election and the second in 2016 for the Australian federal election.
