THE Liberal National Party is polling strongly in Wright with the bookies' choice Scott Buchholz a favourite among voters.

Although many voters at Peak Crossing State School were reluctant to give away their choice this afternoon, the majority of people we spoke to said they would continue to support the incumbent LNP candidate.

Long time LNP voter Bruce Stoken predicted a win for Buchholz.

"I supported Scott Buchholz. (I've been happy) with everything he does and (support) his principles," he said.

Brian Fletcher believed the sitting LNP candidate had Wright's economical interests at heart.

"I voted for the Liberals because they're very concerned about the national debt and the management of the economy is most important," he said.

"Scott represents a Liberal Party who is concerned about our debt."

Wright voter Peter Klimowsow said he voted for Scott Buchholz and predicted a win for the LNP overall.

"We saw what Labor did last time round," he said.

"The LNP's the party who has been there and I think they will still be there after this election."

Labor candidate Allistair Smith also saw some support with members of Wright's working community.

Boilermaker Troy McQueen said he voted for Labor after feeling like his penalty rates were being threatened by the LNP government.

"I voted for Labor today because they support penalty rates and I think the Liberals will try and take that away from us," he said.
