How do vot­ers de­cide?

IT IS just about time to make an im­por­tant decision on who should not only lead the state but also rep­re­sent our elec­torate, but what do you do if they don’t align?

My fa­ther is a long-term voter for one ma­jor party and I’ve con­tin­ued down the same path, yet this elec­tion may be the first in which I jump the fence.

My is­sue is I’m not sure whether lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion or state lead­er­ship is more im­por­tant.

The per­son I would pre­fer to rep­re­sent Bur­nett is dif­fer­ent to that of whom I want to lead the state, but if I help de­liver my pre­ferred can­di­date lo­cal vic­tory it could mean that party will lead the state.

Let me know how you de­cide which level to put first: lo­cal or state?
