After weeks of knocking on the door, political postures, hard hats and high visibility vests, Election Day in Queensland is fast approaching

While many Queenslanders have already voted, hundreds of thousands will go to the polls tomorrow to have their say on who should hold the highest office in the state over the next four years

Annastacia Palaszczuk of the Labor Party and Deb Frecklington of the National Liberal Party vie for the post of Prime Minister, who clash over jobs, the economy and the state’s border status

So where can you vote and how do you get your hands on some delicious democratic sausage?

If you haven’t voted by then, you will need to vote in person at a regular polling station before 6 p.m. on Saturday

Queensland has a preferential voting system, so you must number all the boxes on your ballot to make your vote count

If you have cast a postal vote, it must be received by the Queensland Election Commission (ECQ) no later than November 10 for it to be counted

They are usually found in schools and community halls in your electorate and are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Anyone over the age of 18 registered on the electoral rolls must vote or face a fine

Tens of thousands of Queenslanders did not vote in local elections in March due to coronavirus security concerns

The ECQ let many of these voters off the hook when it comes to fines, but said the same leniency would not be shown after national elections

You’ll be delighted to hear that the iconic Election Day snags are indeed back on the table

In local elections in March, at the height of the COVID pandemic, sizzling sausages and cake stalls were banned

But after careful consideration, Queensland Director of Health Jeannette Young has given the green light to sizzling sausages as long as fundraisers follow COVID safety guidelines

You can get your hands on a delicious Democratic Sausage at most polling stations on Election Day

If you live outside of Queensland and are registered to vote, you must vote by mail

As the Queensland state election draws near, Steve Austin and Matt Wordsworth describe the big questions and crucial moments of the campaign

If you haven’t applied for a postal vote yet, it’s too late – today you need to find an early voting center or you will need to find the nearest voting booth tomorrow

If you have organized a postal vote and have the documentation handy, fill it out and send it today so it can be counted on time

Dr Young has laid down solid ground rules to ensure polling centers operate under a COVID security plan

The Queensland electoral body has expanded postal and early voting to meet increased demand from Queenslanders keen to get in early and avoid the raging crowds on election day

A staggering 70 percent of the state, or 2 million Queenslanders, voted early due to coronavirus concerns – a move unprecedented in Queensland electoral history

The ECQ has warned that this influx of early votes could delay the final declaration of results after November 10
