To help groups organise actions in the lead-up to the federal election, we have uploaded information about each person’s federal electorate and their current MP into Action Network.
This could be used to target emails to rebels in a particular electorate, or to let people know where their MP’s office is in case they want to pay a visit
This information is stored in the following custom fields in Action Network:
|Federal election 2022: electorate||The person’s federal electorate, based on their postcode (but see note below)|
|Federal election 2022: MP title||Title (eg Mr, Ms, Dr) of the current MP for the electorate|
|Federal election 2022: MP first name||First name of the current MP for the electorate|
|Federal election 2022: MP surname||Surname of the current MP for the electorate|
|Federal election 2022: MP email||Current MP’s email address|
|Federal election 2022: MP phone||Phone number of the current MP’s electorate office|
|Federal election 2022: MP office address||Street addres of the current MP’s electorate office. Note: this is a street address, not a postal address. Many MPs have PO Box addresses for mail.|
|Federal election 2022: MP party||Current MP’s party|
Note: The electorate field is not 100% accurate. Postcodes were used to match people with their electorate, but some postcodes span more than one electorate, so it is not always possible to determine a person’s electorate just from their postcode. The electorate listed in Action Network (and the corresponding MP) is the most likely electorate based on the person’s postcode - the electorate which contains the largest percentage of the postcode’s population (using this data). Still, it is probably 95+% accurate.
