    I don't know! If there was a clear party who was better than another then it would be easy!

    So I think I am going to vote for a minor party. Neither party is doing much at all for mental health (which I feel strongly about) unless you are under 25. All the other announcements by the big parties don't really do anything for me at all.

    So a the moment I don't know. Then I had a look on a party I had never heard of before and I liked most of their ideas, but they aren't going to get anywhere really.

    In the end I don't know!

    I am trying to decide the Labor member and the greens candidate. Part of me really wants to vote greens but another part of me thinks I will vote for the Labor party because I figure he has a better chance. Probably greens 1 and labor 2.

    Well a big choice for me was made when labour decided to screw over pharmacies just that bit more. $90k a year is easily 2-3 jobs.. I don't fancy more businesses being lost as an attempt to reduce funds spent on health care.. Following new Zealand's pharmaceutical system will reduce it more than $90k a year!

    Apart from that I'd be lost really!

    Looks like minor parties will be getting a lot of votes if bh ladies are anything to go by!

    I'm a single mother, student, and low income earner. Therefore I would never vote liberal!
    I don't see the point of voting for a minor party so labor gets my vote.

    By policies, and what's important to me. How else could I possibly decide?

    I also think it's important to vote below the line, and not to hand off my preferences to a party to decide... so it's important to me to do a bit of research. It really doesn't take that much effort... you can pretty much do your favourites, then Labor/Liberal (whichever you prefer), then what comes after that doesn't really matter...

    By values and policies

    - if asylum seekers are the number 1 cause of traffic jams then vote liberal
    - if you think asylum seekers shouldn't be sent to PNG then vote greens
    - if you think homosexuality is unnatural then vote liberal
    - if you believe governments can trustfully manage the economy without releasing costings: vote liberal

    ... I could go on but thinking about the election is too depressing

    The vote compass tool is great.
