Where will you go to vote on Saturday and will a democracy sausage be served?

The Australian Electoral Commission reported nearly six million people across Australia have already voted or registered for a postal vote before Saturday.

Electoral commissioner Tom Rogers said the effect of the pandemic on staffing, venues and people’s personal circumstances means that more people need to consider early voting than previous elections.

Under the Commonwealth Electoral Act, voters aren’t required to show identification at polling places. They must verify their identity when they enrol to vote giving their full name and address.

When you vote on Saturday, May 21, you will be given two papers.

One is for the 10 candidates for the Seat of Page. Read about how best to use your preferences.

The other paper is for the Senate where there will be a long list of people to choose from.

If you vote above the line, number at least six boxes from 1 to 6.

If you vote below the line number the boxes 1 to 12.

PS. Take cash with you for your sausage/cake/both.
