Full list of polling booths where you can vote in Ipswich elections on Saturday

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has assured Ipswich residents that council elections and the Bundamba by-election will go ahead on Saturday.

The region’s 140,000 voters will elect a new mayor, eight councillors and, for some, a State MP amid the widespread and unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 crisis.

“The elections will proceed,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“I remind voters to bring their own pen and pencil, and the need to practise social distancing.”

The Premier said huge numbers had already voted by pre-poll, postal or telephone and this would help stop the spread of the virus.

“If anyone is feeling unwell, you should not attend. There will be exemptions for those who are unwell and cannot turn up to vote,” she said.

Voting is compulsory, with a $133.45 fine for not voting, but it is unknown what impact community concerns over the coronavirus will have on numbers turning out Saturday.

There has also been concerns expressed about the three different voting systems for some Ipswich voters (including the Bundamba electorate contest).

An Electoral Commission of Queensland spokesperson said in all Ipswich polling booths, posters will be on display to explain the different voting systems.

“Staff are also available and the instructions are also on the ballot papers,” she said.

There are 60 locations to vote across Ipswich, with about 15 in each of the four divisions.
