Joint Project

This project is a result of a strategic partnership between the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) and Swinburne University. In 2003, the AEC and Swinburne University entered into a strategic partnership to study the homeless cohort and their attitudes towards the electoral system. The result was two publications, the first being this paper published by the AEC.

A second paper written by Swinburne University is an abridged form of this paper but also contains some views, which do not necessarily reflect the views of the AEC, a point acknowledged in the Swinburne paper. The Swinburne paper has been forwarded to the 2005 Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters (JSCEM).
