Pre-poll voting for the 2022 federal election has now opened!

It’s wonderful to be down at the Kingston Pre-poll centre with Senator Tony Sheldon (Visiting from NSW) handing out how-to-vote cards for Julie Collins MP and the Tasmanian Labor Senate team.

Only an Albanese Labor Government can deliver a Better Future for Australians.

The pre-poll centre located at 7 Goshawk Way, Kingston, is open from 8:30am until 5:30pm on weekdays until election day and from 9am- 4:00pm on this coming Saturday.

Thankyou to all Tasmania Fire Service volunteer firefighters for their time, dedication and service in keeping, not only their own communities, but us all safe.

Слава Україні 🇺🇦
