As voting day creeps closer, the spread of Coronavirus has some thinking about the steps they can take to help protect themselves.
Residents wanting to avoid the crowds at the polling booths on March 28 are advised to vote early.
The Electoral Commission of Queensland has put extra measures in place to ensure the risk to voters is minimised.
Voters will be allowed to bring their own pens and pencils to vote, while authorities will keep numbers below 500 at busy polling booths.
Sanitiser will be available for voters and polling officials at early voting centres and polling booths
Additional cleaning of polling booth areas will also be undertaken to ensure that all surfaces are regularly disinfected.
