Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese are blitzing marginal electorates in a final campaign dash to convince voters to pick them on Saturday - giving clues to the leaders' priorities in the final 24 hours. 

The Prime Minister is campaigning in Western Australia, where two Coalition seats and one Labor seat are vulnerable.

Strategists believe WA, which is considered a Coalition stronghold, will be crucial for both sides.
