Ev­ery­thing you need to knowabout the elec­tion

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

A NO­TICE­ABLE lack of sausage sand­wiches and cake stands was not all that was dif­fer­ent about this year’s elec­tion.

Vol­un­teers sta­tioned at booths across the elec­torate may have been push­ing for dif­fer­ent can­di­dates, but they all agreed it was “a lot qui­eter” than usual.

Pre-polling is more popular than ever, and num­bers from Elec­toral Com­mis­sion Queens­land showed al­most 5000 peo­ple – or 14.7% – voted in the two weeks pre­ced­ing polling day.

The Li­ons Club had the bar­bie fired up at Ap­ple Tree Creek with Hel­mut Franz­mann at the con­trols, while this re­porter nar­rowly missed out on sampling Woodgate’s snags.
