Kyabram: Anna Tinkler voted in Kyabram on Saturday, May 21.

Voters steadily trickled into Kyabram P-12 College’s polling station on the morning of Saturday, May 21.

Kyabram’s Anna Tinkler was one of the earlier bunch to hit the polls, coming into her fourth time voting.

She said this election she’ll be voting for Independent candidate for Nicholls Rob Priestly.

“I think Rob Priestly has some great ideas for our community and knows what we really need, I think for Shepparton but also for the greater region,” she said.

She said when selecting her vote, the cost of living weighed heavy in her priorities.

Having lived in Melbourne for several years, Ms Tinkler said she always had the mindset she wouldn’t be able to afford to buy a home in the metropolitan area.

Coming back to live in Kyabram, she assumed she would have a better chance of purchasing a house, but said she found it was still a difficult market to enter as a young person.
