Three weeks is a long time in politics, but has anyone knocked on the Tasmanian Labor Party's head office door to let them know there is an election on?
Because at the moment they are like a dysfunctional family airing their dirty laundry in the middle of the street.
The powerful left faction can't stand the fact people from the party's right may have an opinion and they just can't get on.
Dean Winter's preselection fiasco has dominated their campaign for almost two weeks and there is no end in sight with Clark candidate Ben McGregor quitting over historic inappropriate text messages and Franklin hopeful Fabiano Cangelosi speaking out about his displeasure on party policies that he finds repugnant.
People from both factions are leaking information about the other and it is giving the public little confidence that Labor is ready to govern under Rebecca White.
The Liberals have had a degree of turmoil with Sue Hickey's attacks on the party following her sacking, but Labor is making things easy for the Gutwein government that should be under more pressure to fix the state's housing and health crises along with a myriad of other issues such as transparency. And with pre-polling opening on Monday, Labor best be quick in getting its act together because solar panels on school roofs and indecision on the Northern Prison isn't going to cut the mustard.
The Liberals had the advantage of knowing when Tasmanians were going to be called to the polls and they have come out hard on a key issue this week - health. And we have deliberately heard a lot from Premier Peter Gutwein and key ministers - but who else is running? Backseat candidates on both sides have been left in the background nodding their heads, away from the microphone and well protected by advisers.
However, the electorate wants to hear a variety of views and about the people they are considering voting for - not just those toeing the party line or with skin in the game. This election is crucial for Tasmania as the next government will be tasked with leading us out of a recession and no one can be left behind. The games must end.
