OUR SAY: Enrol and update now to have your say
WITH Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk calling the Queensland State Election for November 25, Queenslanders only have days left to make sure they are enrolled to vote or their details are updated.
South Burnett residents have until this Friday, November 3, to make sure they are enrolled to vote or if they have moved house to let the electoral commission know about that.
This is important to do so you can have your say about the issues that impact our region.
Come polling day, there will also be a change to how we vote at this election.
You will have to number every box from one to however many candidates there are, just like you do on the green ballot paper at federal elections.
Previously at state elections you could just vote one but now you have to number every box.
If you want to nominate yourself as a candidate, you have until November 7 to notify the electoral commission of your intention to run.
Voting is important, it's a civic duty that we have to perform every few years.
Over the next four weeks the South Burnett Times will bring you all the up-to-date coverage from Nanango campaigns, as well as some coverage of the statewide campaign.
Journalists will be on the ground talking with candidates and with you, finding out what matters toour region and making sure the candidates are listening.
You can get the most up-to-date election news on our website at www.southburnetttimes.com.au.
