Where you can vote, and buy lamingtons on Saturday

The lovely folks at North Rockhampton Uniting Church will host a market morning this Saturday and are ready to feed hungry voters.

If you choose the North Rockhampton State High School station to cast your vote in the mayoral by-election, make sure to cross the road and buy some goodies.

There will be art work, clothing, rag mats, craft and plants, as well a delicious morning tea and lamingtons.

As at close of polling Wednesday evening, more than 20,000 residents had already cast their votes.

Electoral Commission Queensland data shows 20,554 residents, representing 36.78 per cent of the vote, have voted by either post, phone or in person.

But with the vote split 17 ways, every vote will count come polling day and it’s important residents make an informed choice.
