Vote [1] Honours Room!

So there's an election this weekend. Ordinarily I'm apathetic about elections because I rarely pay attention to the news, let alone anything political. It's not that I don't care what happens to Australia - rather that I'm uninformed and don't know which parties most closely match my values.
A few days back I was bemoaning the fact that there was no easy way to compare the policies of different parties. Well, in the process of having an entirely unresolved but nevertheless entertaining political argument in the virtual Honours Room, I learnt about comparepolicies.com.au - exactly what I needed!

I'm now looking forward to Saturday's election for the for the first time in, like, ever because I know who to vote for :)
And, er, because we're having a LAN and a nothing-to-do-with-the-election celebratory dinner afterwards (birthday for Melanie, graduation for Tanya, hello for Roland - have I missed anyone?)!

As an aside, reading the policies of parties I disagree with really scares me. :|

Late reply...
I voted Greens. I was pleased to see that they picked up a lot of votes in this election, but disappointed by the overwhelming vote for Liberal. Oh well.
