    I live in a safe liberal seat, couldn't even tell you who is running under alp here. Strongly considering an independent - and all the liberal stuff circulating here attacking the independents is making me feel even stronger that that's where my vote will go. I'm so sick of the tactic of making everyone else look worse rather than winning on your own merit.

    Instead of trying to figure out who would better in power & voting them in, I go the opposite way & vote to keep the worst party out.

    This year it's looking like my vote will go to a minor party, but the rep for my electorate doesn't actually live in it, which makes me uncertain.

    OP - if you don't know what 'matters' to you in terms of the country, its future and also your future then take some time to work out what those things might be. Then read all the parties policies. Especially in those areas.

    Are there any stand outs? Any absolute deal breakers?

    Then look at your local candidates. Do you know them? Have you seen them active locally?

    Then put all your research into your own personal mixing pot and see how you feel.

    If you're up for it also research the differences between the left and right in Australia and the history of the parties.

    I'm going by the party whose values are most aligned with mine, even if I don't agree with all their policies.

    House of reps.. I live in a very safe Coalition seat so whilst I am leaning in a certain direction there is not much on offer. Senate is a bloody nightmare with 97! Candidates across 40 plus parties. I think I might start at the worst and work backwards.

    Definitely a minor party, maybe Greens, but I need to have a look at what the independents in the area are offering too. I was a Labor voter, but I'm so disgusted with their policy on asylum seekers that they've lost me now.
    Priorities mostly asylum seekers, health, foreign aid.
