Compare how Chris Evans and Penny Wong voted on the Intervention in the Northern Territory
Former Australian Labor Party Senator for WA July 1993 – April 2013
Australian Labor Party Senator for SA since July 2002
How they voted compared with each other and someone who agrees that the Federal Government should respond to reports about high levels of child sexual abuse in some Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory by introducing the Northern Territory National Emergency Response or the very similar Stronger Futures Policy, also referred to as "the intervention"
Now this is where it gets a bit tricky… Two people might vote the same way on votes they both attended, so their votes are 100% in agreement. They might also have voted in a way we’d describe differently when looking at all of one person's votes. If the other person didn’t or couldn’t have attended those votes we leave those out of the comparison. Because that just wouldn’t be fair now, would it?
