The Shovel’s Official 2019 Election Guide Is Here

With an election just around the corner, you need analysis you can trust. Our 100-page Official Election Guide – created with the writers at The Chaser Quarterly – is the only way to cope with the absolute shit-show that’s going to consume the nation over the next two months.


  • All 150 electorates reviewed (yes, we actually did that)
  • An overview of Australia’s micro parties (including Bill Shorten’s 21st birthday)
  • How to draw the perfect cock and balls on your ballot paper
  • A special Liberal Party application form for women (approval from husband required)
  • Profiles on all the potential winning candidates, and Scott Morrison
  • Leaked speaking notes from the upcoming leadership debate
  • The official campaign ads from all the major parties
  • Election translation guide: what the jargon really means
  • A Free Helloworld trip to Singapore for every reader


  • Andrew Bolt on why the obvious choice this election is Tony Abbott
  • Peter Credlin on why things were better when she was PM
  • The Guardian on why you should probably feel guiltier about your election-night guacamole dip
  • The Daily Mail’s cut-and-paste of another newspaper’s article
