When Geraldton residents wake up tomorrow, the air will be thick with the smell of democracy. But what about sizzling sausages? Ponder no longer, The Geraldton Guardian has gone the extra mile to answer the most important question of March 13: Where can we get our democracy snaggers?

With the important news out of the way, we should remind you about COVID-19 safety measures. All that should be spreading tomorrow is cheery civic pride.

The Western Australian Electoral Commission will be keeping surfaces squeaky clean and providing hand sanitiser.

Voters should download the WA Safe app before arriving or prepare to provide their name and phone numbers at the booth.

Active citizens should BYO pen/pencil, either toss or take home how to vote cards, social distance, and prepare for things to move a little slower. Disposable pencils will be available.

Finally, don’t come in if you feel unwell. People with COVID-19 symptoms should get tested and isolate while they wait for results. Those who skip the election to keep the community safe won’t be fined.
