Australia Bloggers and Websites Ramp Up For Election

24 September 2007

With the upcoming federal election in Australia only weeks away, the Australian blogosphere and websites in general are all getting in on the crystal ball prediction fun.  Even the gang here at H&K Australia is getting in on the act, with our own “Election Predictor” launching today.  Here are some of the larger “mega” tools that act like “complete guides” to the election.  There are plenty of smaller sites appealing to niche interests but these are the ones that I found that seem to be the most fun.  Who will win – Kevin Rudd, John Howard?  Check out these sites and gaze in to the online crystal ball world.  

The Election Predictor.  the fun part about the H&K site is that you can drill down to individual state or seats and split predictions according to state and shuffle things back and forth and everywhere in between.  You can then share your predictions with friends via Facebook or a simple email challenge.
