No I haven't decided. I'm a swinging voter (but in a safe labor electorate - Julia Gillard's- so it probably doesn't matter)
I don't have a partner but I'm looking forward to sharing the election with DD this year, she was only 3 at the last election so didn't know what was going on then. Her Dad works in media and politics so he will be consumed by it as well.

I will never vote Liberal....
yes I know who I will vote for....

Yes, both of us are lefties so we share the same thoughts on politics. We have always been labor voters but this election greens will get my vote. I suspect DH will also, as he is also unhappy with Gillard but could never vote lib

We both share the same views and will vote the same despite not being happy with either option...
16-05-2013 12:18 #16
Yes. And we have the same views.
16-05-2013 12:41 #17
We have pretty much decided and have the same views.

Yes, I have decided. But for the very first time I will be voting with a heavy heart and a horrible taste in my mouth. I've stuck by the ALP through a lot of nonsense the past few years, but the last 'leadership challenge' made me finally think they don't deserve to be running the country. However. The alternative leadership is too horrible to contemplate. I won't vote Green. I would vote for them if their policies were less minority party and more viable alternative.
I think my partner may vote Green.

Yes, I know where my vote will go.
DH always votes for the Greens.

DH and I actually don't ask each other. We both started off very far to the left, him probably more so than me, but since having kids I think in some ways my views have moderated (but still to the left).
I don't know how I'll vote yet and haven't asked him this time. I think this time I'll be ruling parties out rather than ruling them in.
I feel so let down by Labor these days. But when I think about issues like the environment and asylum seekers I couldnt vote Liberal and look at my children knowing I'd done that to their future.
