GREEN LIGHT CANDIDATES
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 CANDIDATES
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.
