BUNDABERG voters will get to see for themselves their local candidates in action tonight as part of a 40 live debates being put on across Queensland.

It's the most important state election since war time and for the first time, the people we pick will remain in power for four years.

Tonight it is Bundaberg's turn with the debate being hosted by NewsMail editor Megan Sheehan from 7.30pm.
