If you want to get rid of the National Party on the north coast, you have to number every box and put the Nationals last. If you don’t number every box on the ballot paper your vote may be wasted.
If you vote for a candidate that comes third or lower and don’t put a preference, your vote will not count towards the final result. This is important seats such as Ballina and Lismore where Labor and The Greens will be fighting it out for second place. You can bet the Nationals here will do what Campbell Newman tried to do in Queensland and convince people to waste their vote, so make sure you number every box.
