The starting gun has been fired on the election and everyone is getting ready to go to the polls.
Many people in Murrumba recently took the opportunity to enrol to vote, or update their details on the electoral roll.
If you haven’t enrolled, or have moved recently, there is still time to ensure you are eligible to vote in the upcoming State election. Just log onto www.aec.gov.au and they will take care of the rest.
Voting has changed for state elections to a full preferential system. That means voters have to number every box on the ballot paper, starting with a 1. Otherwise your vote could be deemed informal and may not be counted.
There’s 14 places in or near Murrumba where you can cast your vote on polling day, and the full list of places you can vote is here.
You can also cast your ballot before election day on 25 November. Anyone can vote early – no special reason is needed!
The nearest pre-poll centres for Murrumba residents are at: Unit 10, 3-5 High Street, Kippa-Ring; 6/379 Morayfield Road, Morayfield, and Brisbane City Hall, 64 Adelaide Street. The full list is available here.
Being in Murrumba is really a return to my roots for me, and I’m enjoying being here and working hard to deliver for this area.
I’m pleased that the new electoral boundary has all of Dakabin and Kallangur, because keeping these communities together is important. In the meantime, my campaign is focused on making sure our schools have the resources they need, we get the public transport upgrades we want, and that we generate local jobs. So, if you see a crowd of people wearing red T-shirts, come and say ‘hi’ when we’re out and about door-knocking with the Team Miles crew. We’re always up for a chat.
Please don’t hesitate to contact my office if you need any assistance or information about the upcoming election. The Murrumba campaign office is at 1/438 Anzac Avenue, Kallangur – and you can reach us on (0431) 709805 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re always happy to help!
