Do you know your upper house candidates? Take our poll

WITH only days until the state election, most observers are focused on the battle between the Premier and Opposition Leader.

But Victoria's second parliamentary chamber receives far less scrutiny. South-west voters will elect five upper house MPs on Saturday.

They're paid more than $130,000 a year but can you name them?

Fairfax Media has compiled a photo gallery of eight candidates standing for the Western Victoria region, which covers the Warrnambool, Ballarat, Horsham, Geelong, Portland, Stawell and Hamilton districts.

Two of the people included have been MPs for nearly eight years, one has been in parliament for four years and several others are newcomers to the political scene.

Let's see who you recognise and who you don't.
