I am voting for The Greens, as they are the only worthwhile option for Australia; it defies belief that any voters could choose other parties.

As much as you are free to your own opinion, it is important to also be respectful of others' views, which will each hold their own merit. Such a dismissive comment regarding all other views is ignorant and is likely to offend/alienate a large proportion of readers.

It defies belief that people still think their opinion is the only possible valid opinion out there.

You are sounding like a number of members of the Liberal Party who believe in the "merit myth"; it is simply a racist way to see positions being filled by white males instead of women and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse members of our society who are more deserving of power.

It is less than one month now until the election; I am vote for Dr Andrew Leigh MP as my local member and for Bill Shorten MP as Prime Minister, and encourage all others to also do so, as they are putting forward the best offer for Canberrans, in particular those of us employed in the Australian Public Service.

I thought you were voting for the greens because "they are the only worthwhile option for Australia"

I am voting for The Greens in the Senate as I am hoping they will oust Zed Seselja from his seat; in some past elections I have also voted for The Greens in the Lower House, however this year there is a strong progressive team on offer from Labor. Due to my field of work, I am able to tell which sort of government functions best; there has been a long gap since the glory days of Julia Gillard's administration, since that time action on climate change has declined to critically low levels. Initially I had been planning on voting for The Greens in the lower house this year too; since then I have done my research and decided that a strong progressive majority Labor Government will function better than a Labor/Greens Coalition, however in some circumstances such as the excellent Barr Government, the latter is the best option.

Here is Dr Andrew Leigh today on a light rail vehicle; this is just another reason to vote for him. I am going to attend pre-poll in Civic on Monday around 12:30pm to place my vote for Dr Leigh; the voting booth is located at 176 London Circuit for anybody else who wishes to place an early vote for Labor.

Because he went on a tram? Because he chose not to travel on a bus? Because he chose to stand?

Three leaders debates in a row have been firmly won by our soon to be Prime Minister Bill Shorten. I am looking forward to the return of Katy Gallagher to the Senate as well; she was an excellent Chief Minister of the ACT, as was her predecessor Jon Stanhope.

A good couple of speeches doesn't mean they will succeed, don't get your hopes up just yet, we've still got the election to deal with.
