Some story ideas below:

  • Prof Geoff Cockfield can discuss the unprecedented level of pre-poll voting for this year's federal election, and how it will affect future election campaigns. He can also comment on opinion polls, main policy issues and key electorates.
  • With the election advertising blackout due to kick in at midnight on Wednesday, politicians will shift to social media to spruik their messages, prompting the question: how can social media influence voters? Matt Grant can comment.
  • Called the climate change election, how will climate science affect votes, and where do the parties stand on the environment? Assoc Prof Andy Le Brocque is available to discuss.
  • We can buy groceries, order rides and do our banking, but we still can’t vote online. Looking to the future, will Australia make the switch – and is it safe? Prof Raj Gururajan is an expert in cyber security and is available for comment.
