How you can watch the Mackay election debate live
IT'S the most important state election since war time and for the first time, the people we pick will remain in power for four years.
That's why the Daily Mercury is committed to giving Mackay voters the chance to hear from the candidates who want you to choose them on October 31.
Like the Mercury, our debates are going digital this year.
These exclusive live-streamed forums are among 40 being held across the state.
The Mercury and The Courier-Mail have partnered with Sky News and News Queensland's extensive network of regional titles to deliver the most comprehensive election coverage across the state.
Last week we held a digital debate for Burdekin in our patch.
But this week it is Mackay's turn.
The election comes amid a COVID-induced recession, with issues like jobs, infrastructure and community safety expected to be at the top of the agenda across the state.
The Mackay debate will be live on the Mercury website this Thursday at 6.30pm.
