Well, Viv and I have voted in the Victorian state election. In the upper house I voted BTL, with the Victorian Socialists getting my 1st and 2nd preferences and the Greens getting 3–7 (then a bunch of other parties until I was left with nothing but right-wing cookers and stopped numbering). In the lower house I voted 1 Greens because the Vic Socialists aren’t running in my seat (not that I can blame them, I wouldn’t waste resources on my bourgie-ass seat either). Put Labor ahead of the “not actually a teal” independent, and her ahead of the Libs. Would love to see James Newbury turfed out. That 19yo uni student almost beat him last time, so we have a chance 😛
