These results will be posted on the ECQ website, ecq.gov.au.

After election day, the ECQ will start the official vote count and can take up to 10 days after polling day to receive postal votes.

The official count process includes the return of postal votes, scrutiny of declaration votes, and allocation of preferences.

Assisted services

There are a range of services available to give Queensland voters every possible opportunity to have their say at the ballot box.

A person may join you in the polling booth should you need help.

This person may act as an interpreter, read and explain the ballot paper instructions, complete the ballot paper according to your instructions and place the ballot paper in the ballot box.

This service is available during early voting and on election day.

If you’re eligible for Electoral visitor voting, an election official will come to your address for you to cast your vote.
