Where to cast your vote on election day

It’s time to exercise our democratic right and join the masses lining up at schools and community halls.

If you’re not sure where to go to cast your vote in the Federal Election, we’ve compiled a list of polling places across the Gold Coast and Tweed.

Polling places open at 8am on Saturday and close at 6pm sharp.

Don’t forget voting is compulsory and anyone who is enrolled to vote but doesn’t will get a ‘please explain’ from the AEC.

If you don’t have a valid excuse for not voting you could be hit with a $20 penalty.
