Many Japanese voters remain undecided heading into Sunday's ballot.

Support has strengthened for the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, led by Prime Minister Naota Kan. But ratings slipped after Kan floated the long taboo topic of raising the sales tax to curb a public debt.

Voter Shigeko Shinohata said, "I think Kan is trying hard, but I have yet to judge whether he's doing a good job or not."

Another voter Takeshi Takahashi said, "I'm hoping the government to take action to offer more help in raising children, as well as rebuilding our economy. They should also lower corporate taxes to attract more foreign investment."
