Cards Against Australia - MACathon 2022


Site Github


Cards against Australia is a site that makes it easy to learn about previous policies voted on by members of parliament. This website won first place and the Canva sponsor prize in the 2022 MACathon Hackathon in our team of four.

The app provides users with a gamified voting component, where users must decide which mystery politician had the worst vote on a given policy topic. These politician agreement ratings are based on if the politician actually voted for or against a given policy, and represents that politician’s stance on a given topic. Once users have decided which stance is worse, based on their own beliefs, the app shows which member of parliament had that stance.

This stat based system allows users to understand more about what parliament is voting on, the names of the people in parliament, and a general view on if that politician aligns with the view of the user. Overall, the mystery politician approach keeps the user engaged through suspense, and keeps the user interested in the decisions of parliament.


I provided a gigantic contribution for our team, including but not limited to orchestrating backend servers along with the MongoDB database session on a BinaryLane server hosted in Sydney, writing most of the front-end logic and design of the page with Material UI, linking front-end components to back-end API endpoints, and assisting team members in back end endpoint issues and data collection problems we were tackling at the time.
