GYMPIE VOTES: Everything you need to know
THE key date for this year's council election is Saturday, March 28, but it is only one of a handful of important milestones to keep an eye on as the region heads to the polls.
In fact, you do not need to be in the region on the day to have a say, with pre-poll booths open until election day, except for Sunday March 22.
The next crucial question besides "when do I vote" is "who can I vote for"; 30 candidates have put their names forward across all eight divisional and mayoral seats.
In response to the coronavirus pandemic pre-polling hours have been extended.
Voters now have until 9pm today, from 9am-9pm tomorrow and 9am-5pm on Saturday.
Pre-poll hours for Wednesday March 26 and Thrusday March 27 have been extended to 9am-9pm as well.
All postal votes must be made by 6pm, March 28, and received by the ECQ no later than 5pm on Tuesday, April 7.
Telephone voting will also be available unti Saturday, March 28, for people who cannot vote in person or by post.
Election day polls will be open from 8am-6pm.
