schliz writes “Online poll-based political party Senator Online is looking for senate candidates to contest the next Australian Federal Election. The party does not have any policies or an official stance, and promises to conduct online votes on major issues and act in Parliament accordingly. It has already appointed its candidate for the state of New South Wales through an online recruitment campaign in which candidates had to receive a minimum of 100 endorsements — either via its website or Facebook ‘fans’ — and raise a minimum of $200. This will be Senator Online’s second Federal Election. When it contested in 2007, it received between 0.05 and 0.09 percent of each state’s votes.”
