Avoid election day rush and vote early
IF YOU want to avoid the election day rush and don’t mind missing a sausage sizzle, pre- poll voting opens this week.
There are four places in the South Burnett where people can cast their votes early.
Booths are open from 9am- 5pm on most days from November 13- 24 although you can double check times on the Electoral Commission Queensland website.
Pre- poll voters will have an extra hour on Friday, the day before the election, with the booth open until 6pm.
The Electoral Commission of Queensland said voters did not need a reason to cast their votes early.
This election, voting will be slightly different. You now have to fill in all the boxes on the ballot for it to be counted.
If you can’t vote on election day or visit a pre- poll centre, you can apply for a postal vote until 7pm November 22. You can pre- poll at:
Blackbutt Council Building, Hart St
61- 65 Drayton St Nanango
SBcare, 90 Kingaroy St, Kingaroy
Kilkivan Council Building, 26 Bligh St
Go to www. ecq. qld. gov. au to apply for your postal vote.
HAVE YOUR SAY: Pre- polling is now open for the state election.
