I could never in all good conscience vote for Peter Dutton either. I've heard a lot about him from those who have had personal dealings with him prior to his political career and none of it was positive.
I didn't want to preference Labor second, but it is a case they are the best of a bad bunch. Can't say the Liberal Democrats do much for me, the independent is an unknown and I can't remember who else is on the ballot paper.

On your point 3, I don't understand why it is such a hot topic. Just pass the legislation and be done with it. It distracts attention from real issues. I had a work colleague tell me that the LNP have budgeted $160 million has been put aside for advertising the plebiscite (read homophobic campaign). It makes me ill to think what that good that money could be put towards instead it will be wasted on chopping down trees and TV ads.

I'm frankly embarrassed the topic of marriage equality is even still happening. Like SS I just want it passed. I'm over the Libs placing their own conservative bias on this topic. The people want marriage equality, pass the legislation ffs and give everyone the right to marry who they love.
And I feel the same about how uninspired the major parties are. As a long term labor voter I'm so disappointed in the lack of real policy. And Turnbull is worse than Shorten on this. Abbott was a complete lunatic, but Turnbull.... what has he done? At least Abbott had the strength to stand behind his convictions and create policy, even if it was appalling.

Whoever you vote for (and sorry for the caps, but i don't want anyone to miss it)
NUMBER EVERY SQUARE FOR HOUSE OF REPS (green ballot paper) and
NUMBER AT LEAST 6 ABOVE THE LINE IN THE SENATE - or - AT LEAST 12 BELOW THE LINE (white ballot paper).
Make sure your vote counts ☺
For my two cents, given the common interest of lots of people of BH, i think Labor and the Greens will be a much better bet to ensure good PPL and child care support.

Another postal voter here.
I am very disillusioned here. We are in one of the safest labor seats in the country - honestly the labor candidate could be a giant cardboard cutout and they would still win- so we get no attention or no promises as neither of the major parties bother as it's already a done deal. So i just filled it out with ABCDEF lol. Because my vote doesn't make a difference.
The senate vote was a bit of a laugh.
I do hope labor win but it's a bit of a muchness this time. I used to be political but now I'm quite apathetic. So disappointed in Turnbull.
Eta: and like everyone else I think they should legislate same sex marriage and be done with it. Stop wasting time and money, they can't prevent it forever.
