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.
