A popular move
Advance voting has been going on since September 3. As of last Wednesday, about 450,000 people had taken advantage of the opportunity to cast their ballots before election day. This is over twice as many as in 2011.
The weather forecast is for rain over much of the country on Saturday and this has probably influenced many to have an early vote. Friday is the final chance to do this. So if you still wish to avoid the queues and parking problems on 20 September, have an early vote at a library near you.
