Giddings tipping a tight result 

PREMIER Lara Giddings has predicted today's election result will be tighter than the latest polls are predicting, as she cast her vote in Lindisfarne this morning.

Walking into the polling booth, a relaxed Ms Giddings said she there was a feeling of anticipation and excitement.

``Also a feeling of dauntedness as you wonder what the future will hold,'' she said.

The latest Newspoll shows the Liberals are on track to seize power with 53 per cent support, compared to Labor's 23 per cent, but Ms Giddings said she was not contemplating her future if the Liberals win.

``People do tend to come back on polling day and I think (for) traditional Labor supporters, it's very difficult to move your pen across to the Liberal Party,'' she said.

Environment groups put forestry back on the agenda in the final few days of the campaign, which may hurt Mr Hodgman's chances.

``People said to me they thought Will Hodgman was a lay down misere to win majority until he opened his mouth on forestry,'' Ms Giddings said.
