ETech Polls - Accurately polling single-seats for political clients

As Australia heads to the polls on Saturday it appears that the likelihood of a uniform national swing is ever decreasing. As a result, being able to predict the results in individual seats through single-seat polling, is an increasingly important way to determine a party or candidate‚Äôs likelihood to succeed.

Traditionally solutions for tracking voters and handling casework and correspondence were provided to politicians by their party (although paid for by the tax payer).
