Voters have just three weeks in which to make their informeddecision on who they will vote for, before we head to the polls on Saturday,September 7 for the federal election.

Some in the electorate may believe having 11 candidates isfar to many, that it will only create more confusion. However, on the other endof the scale, it provides choice and healthy debate, all the right ingredientsfor a democracy.

The seat of Mallee has been held by The Nationals fordecades and with a big majority, but there are some who believe this will bereduced at the September election, others who are confident the seat will notonly be retained, but with an increased margin.

Perhaps the only let down for voters in Stawell is thatbeing part of such a vast electorate, stetching all the way up to Swan Hill, wedon’t tend to see or hear from candidates as much as we would if they lived onour doorstep.

That distance hasn’t prevented several of the candidatesfrom campaigning hard in areas like Stawell, where they know every vote isimportant and are aware how committed Stawell people are to ensuring we are animportant piece in the big Mallee jigsaw.
