FULL LIST: Where candidates will appear on the ballot paper
INCUMBENT Labor member Bruce Sanders has secured the top position on the ballot paper in the battle for the seat of Maryborough with the LNP’s Steve Coleman on top of the list in Hevery Bay.
The ballot draw – which determines the order in which candidates’ names will appear on the paper locals will use to cast their vote – took place this afternoon.
In Maryborough, Informed Medical Options Party candidate Samantha Packer and
Clive Palmer’s UAP candidate Alex Sokolov will round out the top three names to appear respectively.
In Hervey Bay One Nation candidate Damian Huxham was pulled out of the hat second, followed by Labor’s Adrian Tantari.
Newly announced Maryborough candidate River Body was present at the draw he is running for the Legalise Cannabis Qld Party.
He said he was pleased with the result because being second last was “better than being last”.
Mr Saunders said he was happy with his place in the draw.
LNP candidate Denis Chapman said he wasn’t worried about being in the centre of the draw.
“It doesn’t matter where you are as long as your name is on the ballot,” he said.
He said he had been happy so far with his campaign and said had been getting lots of positive feedback.
