    We both share the same views and will both vote the same - we are small business owners and are responsible for the livelihoods of 8 staff and their families as well as our own!

    The notion that Liberal voters can be put in one box and Labor voters can be put in another is simplistic.

    To suggest that because people vote Liberal they care more about themselves is offensive.

    I'm a swinging voter so I don't put myself in either camp and I acknowledge that peoples choice is a reflection of their personal circumstances and experiences. It's complex for many people to make this choice and I think some restraint in perpetuating voting stereotypes would be helpful.

    I don't have voting rights (anywhere in the world), but I make up for it by attempting to influence as many votes as possible. That influence will be in favour of Labor and Greens.

    DH has the same lack of voting rights, but he has similar views to mine.

    I agree with PPs, I could never be with someone who voted 'right', our basic ideals would be at absolute odds.

    Yeah I know who I will vote for & DH will cast a very similar vote. We have the same political views, although he tends to get a bit more worked up about it than I do, especially while watching Q and A lol

    Degrassi - I love your signature. That quote is fab!

    We both share the same views, and will both be voting the same come the election. It's unfortunate that neither of the major parties support our right to marry, but I feel we can't afford to waste votes on minor parties at this particular election.

    We used to vote opposite. He never really cared about politics and voted for who his parents said to vote for ( they are conservative, backward thinking global warming deniers who are anti immigration- they don't count as immigrants because they are white)
    when we met and started dating he didn't share their views, but didn't realise those views shape political leanings. He's more educated now and we vote similarly. Usually labour with greens for senate ( balance of power in senate is reason) sometimes we have voted green with labour preference. This year will be labour for both as one party having complete power is scary.

    I don't put labor in one box and liberal in another- it is, however, very ingrained in me not to vote liberal, and after watching Australian politics over the last decade or so, I've not seen anything that has made me feel the need to go against that grain.
