With the election only a few months away, we want to hear what issues will win your vote.

So far education and parental leave are faring big, but the economy, health, as well as law and order are also things that voters are most interested in.

Big promises are already being made.

National says its will bring in teacher and principal mentors to help lift schools, with a $359 million carrot to establish specialist teaching roles, while the Greens say they will turn schools into community hubs, providing meals and nurses for kids.

Labour is promising $60-a-week to families with new born babies, free early childhood education for 3,4 and 5 year olds for 25 hours and extending paid parental from 14 to 26 weeks.
