Mallee has its highest number of federal election candidates since the electorate was established. It also has its first independent candidate in more than a decade.
Pental Island man Allen Ridgeway will stand against 11 other candidates, the most since the Mallee division was created in 1949.
Liberal candidate Chris Crewther will sit atop of the ballot paper after drawing number one spot on Friday.
He will be followed by the United Australia Party's Mark Cory, the Australian Sex Party's Amy Mulcahy, Katter's Australian Party's Vince Cirillo, the Citizens Electoral Council's Chris Lahy and independent Allen Ridgeway.
The Green's Jane MacAllister drew seventh spot, sitting above Rise Up Australia's Tim Middleton, Family First's Neil Buller, the Nationals' Andrew Broad and Country Alliance's Michael Coldham.
Labor candidate Lydia Senior will finish the ballot.
"When I was wasn't drawn first or second, I was praying that I would be drawn last," Ms Senior said.
"I don't want to be lost in the middle group.
"I will need to get people to focus on number 12 at the bottom of the ballot paper and just forget all that business in the middle."
Ms Senior said a candidate's position on the ballot paper could sway voters.
"It really depends on how passionate people are," she said.
"There is a lot of apathy out about politics so for people who aren't as passionate the order could matter for them."
Mr Ridgeway, a former refrigeration and gas mechanic, was a late entrant. His campaign will push for a gas pipe network for the Mallee and improved national defence.
"We send all our primary products off to Melbourne to be produced and that's where the jobs are," he said.
"We have a lot of school leavers whose parents take them to the station so the locomotives can take them to Melbourne too.
"If we have gas, the Mallee would change from a dismal place into a strong area. I don't care if it costs a billion dollars; we have trillions of dollars in superannuation funds."
Mallee candidates will go head to head at a rally in Horsham on September 2.
