He's got a profile, but unfortunately for him part of that profile is 'gun nut'.

It's surely a marker of the strange, palsied state of our media and political life that there's been next to no mention throughout of Turnbull's ostensible trigger for holding the damn double dissolution in the first place (ie. the building and construction commission). Or anything much, excepts jobsangrowth.

Well I'm off to vote. To quote Captain Lawrence Oates, "I may be some time".

Sausage sizzle was disappointing, everyone in my seat voted for Liberal, but I did have a nice caramel slice.

Me and Ax voted. I left him behind because I voted above the line not 1-116

Long wait, but they had a band playing and snags in bread were a very acceptable $2.50.

Fun fact: almost never has the trigger actually mattered. 1974 is the biggest exception, but usually the campaign has been overtaken by other things.

Thank god for the Senate?

And of course there's the hope you'll help make it less safe.

When you said goodbye I think I was almost halfway through.

I was pleasantly surprised when I realised the person next to me was also going below the line.

I grabbed another democracy sausage afterwards and it felt like a satisfying reward for a vote well made.

I went below the line but sorry, couldn't make it to 100 or however many it was. I petered out in the thirties because after that point, I just hate them all. Drawing a minute distinction is next to impossible even knowing what I know about the parties involved (as for random independents, forget it in 99% of cases. Who knows what they're running for (or from; a la Cleaver Green).

True enough, I suppose, now that I think of it.

I really think it's only worth going below the line if you want to reorder any party's candidates (I modified five lists) or to express a preference for an ungrouped independent (Victoria has the lawyer who sued the Howard government on behalf of the Tampa refugees). Otherwise there's no difference just filling in as many boxes as possible above the line.
