We're rolling into the pointy end of the 2022 federal election and it's time to cast your vote; whichever way you're swinging, here's where to vote and how to vote early.

How To Vote Early

Voting enrollment for this election is now closed, so if you missed that boat you're out of luck (but you should definitely enrol for next time here). 

Whether you want to avoid being hassled by poster-wielding volunteers or are simply not able to make it to a polling place on Saturday 21 May, you can vote early at select voting centres. You can find them over here

If you're unable to visit a voting centre, you can alternatively cast your vote by post. See here for more information. 

How To Vote On Election Day

Enrolled voters can head into any of these registered voting centres set up across Queensland to submit their ballot on Saturday 21 May. Most polling places are open between 8am and 6pm.
