The “How to Vote” cards are done, printed, voting slips crisp and piled high, the volunteers are organised and each candidate for Bowman says they’re ready for the final showdown and countdown.
We can expect to see those frantic poll booth workers staking out key signage and banner sites outside polling booths from late Friday Afternoon.
Polling Booths for the 2016 Federal Election will open across the city from 8 am this Saturday.
We have 5 candidates to choose from for the House of Representatives.
Here’s how they’ll appear on your Ballot Paper:
Brad Scott – The Greens
Kim Richards -ALP
Andrew Laming -LNP
Tony Duncan -Australian Liberty Alliance
Brett Saunders -Family First
Incumbent Andrew Laming has held the seat since 2004.
It’s a double dissolution election which means we will vote not only for our House of Reps MP, but our Senators as well.
Voting rules for the Senate have changed – this federal election we need to, on our white Senate ballot paper, either:
• number at least six boxes above the line for the parties or groups of your choice, or
• number at least 12 boxes below the line for individual candidates of your choice.
We have until 6 pm to vote and counting commences upon completion of polling.
Results on the night will be covered and tracked by Plus More’s team across the city.
Enjoy your democratic right to vote and if the mood takes you, and if the mood so takes, munch on a sausage.
