INDEPENDENT New England candidate Adam Blakester has further refined his collaborative policy platform, which has been created with input from the community.
Mr Blakester said his focus has been on finding the "baker's dozen" for the electorate.
"The feedback we're getting is that we're on the right track," Mr Blakester said.
"It's useful to look at the major points of difference on offer between myself and the incumbent [New England MP Barnaby Joyce].
"Climate change, the future of farming, renewable energy and water are the major areas of difference. A mix of those are often in the top three points of concern."
Mr Blakester said his all encompassing water and farming policy aimed to address each of the big issues.
"In simply terms, it's putting in to place a 30 to 50 year strategy, to ensure we have a strong farming future, with water security, while tackling the threats to water by addressing things like mining on farm land," he said.
Another key part of his policy platform is to encourage economic development by turning the region in to a tourist destination.
"And building on that, having a really positive image to sell to in terms of relocating businesses and people to the region," Mr Blakester said.
The independent is also calling for a plebiscite on climate change, which if passed, would seek to put in place legislation that ensured Australia meets it's Paris Agreement target.
"That takes the issue of climate change out of politics, and instead, puts it in to an action plan for the country," he said.
Mr Blakester said the other main difference was the style of leadership on offer.
"Voters have to ask themselves if they want a collaborative, highly transparent leader, with trust and integrity working with and for the electorate, or do they think this aggressive kicking-in-doors style of leadership is what's required," he said.
Around 10,000 people have already cast an early vote at a pre-polling booth.
