Polipedia is a Melbourne-based digital political data start up by Su Dharmapala and Ebony McKenna. We are a non-partisan start up with a focus on providing voters with political information so that you can make the best decision at the ballot box. None of the founders of Polipedia are current members of a political party.
Polipedia are definitely not hackers! Polipedia aggregates information from publicly available sources and presents it back in an easy to understand format. There is nothing on Polipedia that determined sleuthing can’t find. Determined sleuthing = about 20 hours of your time, if you have it. We're sure you have better things to do - which is why we created Polipdia in the first place, to save time!
Australians are generally disengaged in politics. It is too easy for us to say that all parties are the same. In the face of the real challenges we need better representation. We cannot get better representation without better people in politics.
We will be presenting information about the political parties or other associations those parties may have with vested interests. This is all publicly available information aggregated in the one, easily searchable place.
