When deciding on who to vote for in the upcoming Federal election it might seem like choosing the best of a bad bunch.

Both major parties have had their share of bad publicity and misrepresentation, but at the end of the day, it's inevitable that one of them will win on Saturday, May 18.

For Gloucester's Grahame Holstein it's important to vote for one of the major parties to ensure the incoming government can make decisions in the Senate.

"I feel I should vote for a major party but I'm finding it difficult because both have policies I don't agree with," Graham explained. "I feel there is a need to vote for a major party so they have enough control."

"If they don't have enough control, the smaller parties tend to have more power. Some of the minor parties have worse policies."

Grahame was once a member of the former Australian Country Party but left when he disagrees with plans to close Gloucester's train station. At this stage, the 77-year-old OAM isn't a member of any party.
