Pre-polling has opened in the Eden-Monaro byelection and it appears right-wing independent Riccardo Bosi is on the nose with fellow candidates in the major parties.
Labor, Liberals and the Greens have all put Mr Bosi last in their suggested "how-to-vote" cards, while the National Party has him at 13 - instead placing the Greens last.
The leader of as-yet-unregistered political party Australia One has expressed support for Donald Trump's call to regulate social media, wants to cease all immigration until infrastructure catches up, is keen to develop Australia's "full spectrum warfare capability including space, sonic and cyber", and wants to ban "forced vaccinations".
In a tweet asking whether he would place Labor or Liberal higher on his how-to-vote card, Mr Bosi replied "Neither. Both should be burned to the ground".
At Bega's pre-polling booth on Monday morning, Liberal candidate Fiona Kotvojs was greeting the handful of locals drifting in slowly to cast their early vote.
Her suggested preferences are heading the way of National Party's Trevor Hicks and Christian Democrat Narelle Storey ahead of Liberal Democrat Dean McCrae and independent James Holgate.
Labor rival Kristy McBain appears in the number 11 spot.
Ms McBain and Greens candidate Cathy Griff have exchanged their number two spots, with Labor then preferencing Shooters, Fishers and Farmers candidate Matthew Stadtmiller at three.
Science Party deputy leader James Jansson and Michael Balderstone from the Help End Marijuana Prohibition Party (HEMP) follow in four and five respectively.
On Ms Griff's how to vote card it's Mr Balderstone at three, Mr Holgate at four and Mr Jansson at five.
Mr Hicks is sticking with hiss Coalition colleague in placing Dr Kotvojs in his number two slot ahead of CDP's Ms Storey. Interestingly Ms McBain appears at number four on the Nats' ticket.
Of key importance is that voters should make up their own minds about who they select and how they vote. The candidate handouts are for information and suggestions only. Voters can preference whomever they wish. For your vote to count though, you must number every box on the ballot paper, from 1-14. Anything other than that is declared informal and a wasted vote.
