The homeless man sitting on the pavement in Gunghalin Place as the workers grab lunch around him voted Labor.
The teenager in the beautiful pink hijab approves of Labor because she thinks it's better for minorities - but she's pulling towards the Liberals because she thinks they're better for her father's business.
The teacher of Chinese is a huge fan of Labor leader Andrew Barr.
The older white Australian loathes Andrew Barr.
Conclusion: the Yerrabi electorate which may well decide who governs the ACT is complex and shifting. It doesn't fall neatly into categories.
The most northerly electorate in the ACT has a high proportion of people who migrated to Australia or whose parents migrated to Australia.
It sends five members to the ACT Assembly - three Labor and two Liberal in the last session.
If Liberal leader Alistair Coe is going to oust Andrew Barr as Chief Minister, he needs to reverse that proportion.
There are some good signs for him: a lot of people in our unscientific sample talked about the cost of property - and that's a theme the Liberals have hammered away at.
And there are some bad signs for him: discontent with Labor is not loud and obvious.
"I was pretty impressed with Labor," Ya-hui Tang said. "Andrew Barr is the one I really like."
She thought he was strong during the bushfires. "I feel that for us, he is always there." What really impressed her was that Labor people knocked on her door.
Eighteen-year-old Shy Chand voted last week - one Liberal (because he's a friend of her father's) and four Labor.
She is bright but unemployed. When she went for a job in a clothes shop recently, she found she was competing against people with PhDs from the ANU.
"Labor has promised me jobs which is what I need," she said.
Further down Gunghalin Place, Zoe Wang said she had a distant Chinese background but recently moved to Canberra from Perth.
"Compared to Perth, most things are expensive," she said.
But she really likes the multicultural Canberra atmosphere. "The people are open-minded."
Her worries about the cost of living ought to resonate with the Liberals' message but she has split her vote. "I vote for people, not party," she said.
Joe Wethers is voting for anybody but Andrew Barr. He said he voted for Paul Keating and would vote for Donald Trump but never, ever for Mr Barr - ever.
Mr Wethers is very angry at cyclists who come too close to him, and blames Labor for that, and for "young adults who are quite aggressive".
The hopeful signs for the Liberals are that several people were concerned about public spending.
Malcolm Holgate had picked up on one of Mr Coe's themes. "Why am I going to pay half a million dollars for 450 square metres of land when I could go to Murrumbateman and buy a house and land for that?
"It doesn't make sense."
Hafsa Ikram is too young to vote by four months but she's very tuned into politics. Her parents moved to Australia from America after 9/11 because of anti-Muslim feeling - and they have thrived here, running restaurant and taxi businesses.
Ms Ikram likes Labor because they seem good for people of Middle Eastern and Pakistani background.
"But the Liberals are also promising a lot of things which are helpful to us. They would help my dad."
And the homeless man?
"Labor may help me out a bit."
He's been sleeping on friends' couches for more than three months since his relationship collapsed. He's worked as a delivery driver, a cleaner and a pizza maker but the work has dried up.
