Meet the future of Australia.
These six young people from the much-maligned Generation Y will undergo an Australian rite of passage when they vote in a Federal election for the first time next Saturday.
And they want our political leaders to know they're not thrilled with how they've been running the joint.
"For all the elections I'll ever vote in I feel like this is probably the most important," politics and economics student Liam Staltari told _The Weekend West _.
"I'm pretty disillusioned with this Government. I'm not impressed with it. I feel like taking part in not just voting but actually trying to oust (the Government) is something that's really, really important."
Liam belongs to the Young Liberals and has volunteered to help the party.
His friend Jonathan Kirke is his political opposite.
"I'm hopeful the result will be good for the country, as in Abbott won't get in," he said.
Jonathan is from a Labor family and gets information about politics by talking to friends who, he says, are politically engaged.
Sports science student Gregory Allen, 19, is voting for Palmer United Party because he's impressed with Clive Palmer.
"He just seems very normal compared to the other parties," Gregory said. "He seems very open, doesn't really seem like he holds anything back, whereas Tony Abbott and Kevin Rudd seem like they're withholding information from the public."
Second-year apprentice Cameron Newton, 18, is voting Labor because they supported an increase in apprentices' wages.
He's also impressed with their use of social media.
"I think it was the photo of Kevin Rudd holding an equal marriage rights sign that got a lot of hits on Facebook," Cameron said. "But I don't think Tony Abbott in his budgie smugglers is the best view. He definitely has sex appeal, right?"
University student Julie Pham, 18, is undecided but says politicians should try harder to appeal to young voters.
Her advice? "Use humour and smaller words."
High school student Paige Fairweather turned 18 this week, just in time for the election.
She's also undecided but prefers Mr Rudd's style. She wants to see more policies aimed at young people from both parties."There's not really a lot out there about or by people my age concerning politics," she said.
