  1. Can any locals enlighten me on why the booths here are so linear, and what is the reason for the sharp division in political leanings between the two main lines?

  2. Hallam and parts of Hampton Park (in the west) are older and contain some low-rent public housing type areas. Hence the 70%+ vote Labor racks up in those areas. In contrast, Berwick and Narre Warren are typical growing outer suburban areas, and are politically more marginal.

  3. Candidates in ballot paper order are:

    Claus Endres – Greens
    Judith Graley – Labor
    Gary Rowe – Liberal
    Ian George –
    Angela Dunleavy –
    Nathan Dodd – DLP
    Mark Konkel – Family First

  4. I just ask that voters will consider all options and look beyond the smoke screen and mirrors. It is your voice and concerns that matter and please ask the questions that are not being raised. Good Luck to all the candidates and Please remember they are the reason you are here. Kind Regards Ian George, Independent candidate Narre Warren South.
