    Neither the Liberals or Nationals are friends to single parents, public education or same sex marriage. They do hate asylum seekers though.

    well labor are traditionally the party more aligned with social welfare so if you are choosing between those two only, you would probably vote for labor.

    I can't stand bill shorten though. he's a weak character and is not PM material. Malcolm has more presence, is well spoken and is actually a bit sexy. so based on personality, i'd vote for MT

    I agree from what I've seen on TV shorten does not look like prime minister material! But it sounds like labor has the better policies. Argh so hard to decide!!!

    my post was tongue in cheek. in no way was I suggesting you should vote for a party based on the personality of its leader.

    if you feel labor's policies best represent your values, vote for them.

    what I struggle with is how to figure out where your vote will ultimately end up. I've always voted for the sex party in the last few elections...how do I know where my vote is going indirectly? I'm assuming labor?

    OP FWIW I'm a single mum, with a special needs child, working part time on a lowish income.

    When the Libs delivered their latest budget there was a calculator floating around the internet (I do not have a link) where you could plug your details in and it would say if you would be better or worse off with the Libs budget.

    I plugged mine in and I came out worse off under the Libs latest budget.

    Doesn't mean that you would
    a) Get the same results
    b) Be better off under a Labor government

    I would suggest you do as others have said and do the compass quiz and vote for the party that most closely aligns with your values.

    Nope. Their preferences went to libs last election. If you vote below the line then you choose exactly where your votes go.

    Under the new Senate voting system you can vote above the line to direct your preferences where you want. You just need to number at least 6.
