Something like Calculated Risk, with lots of data and layman-level explanations of its probable import, would be perfect.

Postcode ranges in Australia?

I am looking for a source on the internet that will give me ranges for postal codes in Australia for metro areas, eg, 3200-3500 is Melbourne where the range would include all suburbs generally agreed to be part of metro Melbourne. If they aren't really in a range, than a list of all the Melbourne metro postcodes would work. I feel like I have only found ranges by state but those include rural areas. Any help very appreciated. The cities are Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

Voting remotely

We've recently moved from one Australian state (NT) to another Australian state (Tasmania), and have neglected to update our voting registration details. Aware that an election is about to take place in the NT, I started looking into changing my voter registration, only to discover that the election is happening this Saturday, and it's probably too late for the change to take effect! Am I likely to get into trouble for going to the electoral office in Hobart to vote in the NT election, given that while I remain on the electoral roll in the NT, my actual residence is now in Tasmania? Or should I just send in the voter registration change-of-address forms as quickly as possible and hope for the best?
