People power and Elections Part I

This is the first of two episodes about people power in election campaigns. Today we feature a campaign by the Australian digital campaign group GetUp. This independent community movement worked to change the electoral outcome in the Tasmanian seat of Bass in 2016. The story shares lessons about how people can work in elections to have their needs and issues heard, and the role that local relationships and issues play in this work.
