Hi everyone,

As the title suggests, I'm trying to find out how to get some info on who to vote for this election. I'm 20 now and it's going to be the first time I can vote since I narrowly missed out the last time (worked there on the day and handed everyone their papers tho lol).

My dad has been constantly ranting on "Vote National, Vote National, you'll get screwed over otherwise blah blah blah". So I can't really listen to him because he's not helpful. Mum doesn't like talking about it too much either, bores her to bits. 

I try googling things, but all I seem to find is scandals and things like that, might as well be spending my time watching Scandal the show.

So where do you all get your info about who to vote for? I don't want my vote to be a waste because I didn't bother researching.

Cheers in advance. :D

you always end up voting for who you think is the lesser of 2 evils

no one can help you make up your mind, you just need to do a lot of reading on the partys websites and like others have said elsewhere in the internet

Good luck

Go to parliament or watch parliament TV during question time. That's a very good way to get an unbiased view of where parties and MPs stand.
