Not sure I like the idea of the coalition to be honest, they would never get the numbers if they all hadn't joined up together.
And Pegasus, people not knowing their greens votes would go to labour as preferences, were they living under a rock? Exactly why there needs to be some kind of course on politics/voting etc.

Having said that, Greens are becoming a force to be reckoned with. I think unhappy labor voters who feel they have lost their way and lost their grass roots beliefs for low and middle income are voting greens - and that will be me this year.
And I'm puzzled by something I see on here a lot... Greens votes going to Labor? Greens votes don't go anywhere but to the Greens. The preferences YOU give on your ballot form go where you want them to. If you vote Greens then Liberal your preferences can't magically go to Labor, no matter what the Greens would like.
Isn't that only if you fill out your preferences, if you choose to just put the 1 at the top of the box, then the preferences goes to whoever the party that you voted for decides.
I usually vote down the bottom, but at the last election, I knew that my preferences would go to labor, so I just did 1 for the greens.
Yep, you can choose your own preferences. Or you can just vote "1" and nothing else, but if you wanna do that, then you don't complain about preferences!
I didn't complain. I only do one if the preferences are going to who I would have chosen to preference myself.
When I do choose below the line, it takes me AGES to choose who will come very last place, everything up to that part is easy. But who will come last? Christian democrats, libs or shooters. Tough decision! haha
