A field of eight candidates will contest the seat of Wright in the Federal Election on May 18.

David Wright, who is standing for United Australia Party, takes the number one spot on the ballot.

Shannon Girard, who is standing for The Greens, has gained the number two spot.

Independent, Innes Larkin sits at the number three position and Pam McCreadie is in fourth position.

Rod Smith representing Fraser Anning's Conservative National takes the fifth spot, while Matthew Tomlinson, Katter's Australia Party is sixth.

Seventh spot has been filled by Chris O'Callaghan from Pauline Hanson's One Nation, while LNP sitting member Scott Buchholz is filled the eighth position.

The seat of Wright is a relatively new electorate and was formed in 2010 and named after Australian poet Judith Wright. It was claimed by Mr Buchholz as the inaugural member.

"We've delivered a lot for our local area and I have a plan that will deliver even more, while keeping the budget in surplus and taxes lower," Mr Buchholz said.

"At this election I'm asking voters to give me their first preference so that we can continue the work we're doing for the Australian people."
