Country Labor candidate Stephen Lawrence has preferenced the Greens' Rod Pryor second, and The Nationals' Dugald Saunders last, on his how-to-vote material ahead of the March 23 state election.
Campaigning in Dubbo hit fever point on Monday as pre-polling opened at the early voting centre in Shop 2, 70 Talbragar Street, opposite the Castlereagh Hotel.
Of the five how-to-vote cards the Daily Liberal was able to obtain on Monday, only Mr Lawrence has provided any advice on how people should direct their preferences.
Mr Lawrence ranked Mr Pryor second, independent Mathew Dickerson third, Shooters, Fishers and Farmers' Lara Quealy fourth, the Flux party's Joanne Cotterill fifth, Australian Conservatives (NSW)'s April Salter sixth, and Mr Saunders seventh.
The remaining candidates - Mr Saunders, Mr Pryor, Ms Quealy and Mr Dickerson - have declined the chance to direct people's preferences, instead advising people to "vote one", and then number the remaining squares as they see fit.
The Daily Liberal requested how-to-vote materials from the Australian Conservatives (NSW), but they did not respond by deadline.
Flux pointed the Daily Liberal to a recent blog post by co-founder Max Kaye, which outlines a complex preferencing policy.
Flux groups parties as either "cooperative" - agreeing to put Flux in the top half of all other groups on their how-to-vote materials - or uncooperative.
Flux further categorises parties as either major (receiving four per cent or more of first preference votes) or minor (less than four per cent).
The party will then advise voters to preference in the following order: Flux; minor "cooperative" parties; major "cooperative" parties; so-called uncooperative minor parties, and; 'uncooperative' major parties.
