The past week has all been about the federal politics with the election campaign officially underway.
Both Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Labor leader Bill Shorten have spent time in Northern Tasmania in the past seven days, hoping to convince voters in the marginal seats of Bass, Braddon and Lyons for their votes.
Our newsroom has been flat out analysing the major parties' fiscal policies and talking to key stakeholders about key projects they say are important to Northern Tasmania's prosperity.
The Examiner has launched its coverage and is prepared to advocate for policies and projects that are going to make a difference to your lives.
We're going to cut through the political spin and analyse every promise to ensure you can make the best decision at the polling booth on May 18.
We invite you to participate in our election survey to let us know what issues and projects are important to you.
You can fill out the survey HERE.
