What elections will the Science Party contest?


The Science Party is registered to contest federal elections under our party name (that is, with "Science Party" printed on the ballot paper). Federal elections are our focus, but we don't have the resources to run in every electorate. We decide where to run candidates based on where we have had past success or where a strong candidate puts themselves forward.

We plan to contest state and territory government elections and council elections in the future. To do this we need to fulfil extra requirements, including having more members in those areas.

It will also be easier to run state and territory campaigns with dedicated volunteers to run meetings around the country. If you're interested in helping with this, please email our volunteers manager.

We contested the 2013, 2016 and 2019 federal elections, as well by-elections in North Sydney (2015), Bennelong and New England (2017), and Longman, Perth and Wentworth (2018).

Election results can be found on the AEC and ABC websites.
