Dyson is running as an independent candidate for the seat of Wannon in the state of Victoria.

In one of the few Western democracies where voting is compulsory, Australians will go to the polls in a general election on May 18 after Prime Minister Scott Morrison fired the starting gun last month on a campaign set to be fought over taxation, climate change and inequality.
