Lyons is the state's second most marginal seat and has already been subject to attention from the major parties early on.
At the forefront has been the announcement from both major parties to pledge $100 million to support the third phase of the state's irrigation plan as well as an assortment of grant promises for Tasmania's most regional councils.
The electorate accounts for one-third of the state's land mass and has required federal elected representatives to spread themselves thin and spend countless hours on the road to visit constituents.
With Braddon, voters in Lyons can expect to be targeted by the Nationals this election campaign with the party holding the belief it is the only one which truly recognises the interests of the state's rural community.
The party's candidate, Longford-based Deanna Hutchinson, has been an interesting choice for the party and a drift away from the Akubra-wearing, sun-weathered stereotypes of years past.
Ms Hutchinson describes herself as a strategist who uses technology to achieve transformational change.
"Some call me a futurist; you could even say I'm a technology evangelist," her LinkedIn page reads.
The seat was held for a single term by Liberal Eric Hutchinson before Brian Mitchell got in by a margin of 3.5 per cent after the cut-up of preferences in 2016.
Mr Mitchell did particularly well at the larger polling booths in Bridgewater, Brighton, Beaconsfield, Midway Point and Sorell.
He and his Liberal opponent Jessica Whelan live in the state's South so there will be interest in how much attention is paid to the northern end of the state, particularly due to an electoral boundary redistribution which has taken in the suburb of Prospect.
Former Labor member Dick Adams, who was based in the North, held the seat for 20 years until the 2013 election.
The swing against him was the largest in the country at more than 13 per cent in that election.
Break O'Day Council mayor Mick Tucker said mayors within Lyons were gravely concerned that, if there was a change in government, Labor would not honour funding grants that councils had been successful in attaining.
"We wish to make sure that we have politicians of all persuasions honour their commitments," he said.
Cr Tucker said preventative health and mental well-being are two of the most important issues that need to be addressed this election.
"We need to, on top of our infrastructure projects, look at the health and well-being of our community," he said.
Meander Valley Council mayor Wayne Johnston said job-creation initiatives by candidates would be welcomed.
"Agriculture is a big part of the Lyons electorate and the agricultural sector needs to be looked after," he said.
"At Meander Valley, we are hopeful we will be successful in securing the Northern jail.
"To have jobs, you have vibrant communities."
