Independent and minor party election candidates say they do not yet know which major political party they'd support if opinion polls are right and a hung parliament is voted in on March 23.
If Labor or the Liberal National Coalition can't win the 47 seats needed to form a government, they will be forced to rely on Greens, Independent or Shooters MPs to form a government.
Independent candidate Mathew Dickerson said "the only preference I have is to deliver the best possible outcomes for this electorate so I have no preference for either party."

"What is certain is that a hung parliament with an Independent in the seat of Dubbo will be the best possible outcome for this seat," he told the Daily Liberal.
When asked why he couldn't give a clear answer about which major party he'd support if he was forced to make a decision, Mr Dickerson said "a negotiation is useless if you walk into the negotiation having already declared publicly what you want as the outcome of the negotiation".
"The reality is I have no preference [for Labor or the Coalition to form a government] and, if I am fortunate enough to be elected in a hung parliament, I will work hard on both parties and support whichever party will deliver the best outcomes for this electorate.
"The reality is that voters rarely know who is going to form government when they walk into vote.
"When I vote, I am voting for the individual person that I feel will best represent my electorate in State Parliament."
Shooters, Fishers and Farmers candidate Lara Quealy joined Mr Dickerson in declining to say who she would support if a hung parliament eventuated.
"I don't have confidence in either of the major parties," she said.
"The major parties have disgraced themselves and their constituents for far too long and it doesn't look like the rot is going to stop anytime soon.
"If an Independent or minor party is backing a major party then yes voters deserve to know...I am not.
"I have asked voters to put 1 next to my name on Election Day and that's it."
Flux party candidate Joanne Cotterill said she wouldn't make any decision without first polling the electorate.
"For every decision I will be consulting members online and via an app to allow them to have a say," she said.

"I will vote with what they want. The party I would vote with would depend on the results of the vote of the Dubbo electorate on every issue."
Greens and Australian Conservatives candidates were asked for comment but failed to respond before deadline.
