About the guides
Vote Climate One categorises all candidates and parties into three easy-to-follow groupings.
Listings are displayed in alphabetical order within each traffic light colour group.
Vote Climate One is party neutral. Positioning in lists does not infer any candidate or party is superior or inferior to another within each group.

Lower House: Bendigo East
GREEN LIGHT CANDIDATES
TOLHURST, Michael James
Green light candidates have been rigorously assessed as absolutely committed to real action on the climate emergency. Number these first when you vote.
ORANGE LIGHT CANDIDATE
Orange light candidates are preferable to red but have some question marks over their climate policy or party voting record. When you vote, number them after the green light candidates.
RED LIGHT CANDIDATES
Red light candidates are a dangerous choice if Australians want real action on the climate emergency. Number these after the green and orange candidates.
Upper House: Northern Victoria Region
Bendigo East falls within the Northern Victoria Region in regard to voting in the upper house (The Legislative Council) for Victoria.
Above the line voting in Victoria means you run the risk of supporting back room preference deals which will not help elect candidates committed to climate action. Read more...
