Join Lunaticks LIVE Tech Show for an hour long federal election debate on innovation and technology. Come hear candidates for the seat of Newcastle as they debate the important issues that matter to our technology and start-up community.
The debate will be divided into 4 major segments. Each segment will begin with a question from our moderators to each candidate. Candidates will have up to 2 minutes to answer. They will also address questions posed by the audience.
Also, each party has been offered 5 minutes prior to the main debate, if they can provide any senior party member who can join the event in person or via Skype for a one-on-one interview.
You can pose questions via Twitter using the hashtag #Newyvotes. Best questions will be selected by a panel of grumpy old members that will go through to the debate on the night.
