YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU! TO COLLECT ELECTION FLYERS, STICKERS, POSTERS…The National Library collects and preserves printed election campaign materials to ensure a permanent record Australia’s federal political history is kept, and we would be very grateful if you could help us collect it. Please keep any Federal election campaign material you come across in the lead-up to the 18 May election and post it to us!
We’re interested in copies of any original printed leaflets, letters to constituents, how-to-vote cards and anything related to election issues. We aim to collect as comprehensively as possible, to preserve material for every candidate, party and lobby group, and we try to gather material from every electorate across Australia.
We would also appreciate it if you could help us spread the word – perhaps you have friends or family in regional or remote areas of Australia, or could put us in touch with Australians voting from overseas?
Please send original campaign material (published, not photocopies or digital files) for inclusion in the national collection to:
National Library of Australia
