Database Upgraded

The major upgrades to the hardware and software used for this website have been completed. We thank Alan Dodds and Jamie Graham for their work, and the University of Western Australia for the financial support which made the upgrades possible.

We can now resume providing summary information for contemporary Australian elections (see the results for the 15 October 2016 ACT Assembly election here) and continue to enter missing historical data on elections and governments since 1856.
