April 12, 2012

Pre-poll voting for the 2012 Local Government elections opens on Monday (April 16).

Voters in the South Burnett Regional Council area will be able to pre-poll vote at the Council offices in Blackbutt, Nanango, Kingaroy, Wondai and Murgon from 9:30am-4:30pm, Monday to Friday (closed Anzac Day, April 25).

On April 27, the eve of election day, the pre-poll voting offices will be open from 9:30am-6:00pm.

If you live in Division 2 (Blackbutt, Maidenwell, Bunya Mountains), Division 3 (Kingaroy, south of Haly Street) or Division 5 (Murgon) you DON’T have to vote. This is because there is only one person standing in each of these divisions so they will be elected unopposed.

However voters in Division 1 (four candidates), Division 4 (two candidates) and Division 6 (two candidates) MUST vote. Voting is compulsory.

To check out what Division you live in, see this handy interactive map on the ECQ website.
