the governing parties.

Plenty of activity around the polling booths
Although a number of people took the opportunity to
cast their vote ahead of Saturday’s Federal election, there
were still plenty of people around and local schools made
the most of the opportunity.
Parents’ and Citizens’ Associations organised stalls at
Clifton, Nobby, Allora, Emu Creek and Wyreema booths,
while Ramsay State School added a garden party to the
