Voting 

Picking 6 for the senate was tricky, but I did the research and persisted.

Then I checked the HTV suggestion from my 1 pick and we had the same 6 in the exact same order.

So I feel pretty good about the consistency of my beliefs, and those I'm voting for!

Voting, gross 

Looked at the HTV for house of reps for my number 1 pick, and we do not agree about the other 5.

Still... it's more a case of ranking turds by smell and texture on that one, so discrepancies are fine and ultimately meaningless

Voting 

Seriously though, how do you rank One Nation and UAP? It's a real 'would you rather burn alive or be stung to death by murder hornets?' kinda question

Voting/climate change 

I always though of PHON as the party that would cause me and my friends harm given half a chance, and therefore worse.

But the weird thing about carbon emissions is that the results are generational and compounding and so slow moving that the billionaire actually causing real tangible harm right now seems less worse because it's all laundered through the climate system 🤷

@ash I guess the good news is you can put them both low enough that they never catch a whiff of your vote at all, but even as a thought exercise you kinda have to pinch your nose to see it through

@JacksonBates Somehow I'd rank OneNation over UAP. Pauline Hanson pretends she cares about the country. Clive Palmer clearly doesn't give a shit about anything but himself and the dictator vibes are (somehow) even stronger with him.

Voting 

@JacksonBates for me it was "Which one wanted to make me "go back to where I came from" first. which was One Nation. was difficult to not put them both last

Voting 

@saera @JacksonBates My rule of thumb is to choose the party I think will produce independents less extreme than the party when it inevitably implodes. Not really any easier to work out though.

Voting 

@JacksonBates This is why I liked optional preferential voting so you could exhaust your vote if none of your preferred candidates made the 2PP.
