Federal election 2019: Where to vote early and on election day in Bowman

VOTERS who are unable to cast their ballot on Saturday are reminded to vote early or ask for a postal vote by Wednesday.

An Australian Electoral Commission spokesperson has also reminded Karragarra Island voters that there is no polling station on the island on Saturday.

Island residents will have to vote early, ask for a postal vote or travel to a polling station (see the list below) on election day.

The spokesperson said Karragarra did not have a polling place due to low voter numbers.

Lamb Island will be visited by a mobile team from 9.30am and 3.30pm on Saturday to allow residents to vote.

"On election day people can cast their vote at any polling place in Queensland," the spokesperson said.
