There was bipartisan support between a group of friendly volunteers at a polling booth now open in Midland for those who want to get their vote in early.
Mundaring resident and Greens volunteer Laurence Osborne told Echo News a Liberal volunteer had offered to store his electioneering material under their shelter as rain threatened on Monday.
Mr Osborn said a Labor volunteer stepped up to help repair the Liberal’s marquee during a windy blast and he said the friendly cooperation between contesting parties made manning the booth enjoyable.
Pre-polling booths have now opened in Midland and Northam for those who want to vote before election day on Saturday, March 11.
The polling booths opened on Monday this week and they will be open from 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
Both Liberal and Labor volunteers manning the booths told Echo News the first few hours of the first day of pre-polling, had been quite busy, and a lot busier than the first few hours manning the polling booths for the federal election.
In Midland the booth is located outside the Landgate building on The Aveune.
In Northam a booth has been set up in the Northam Lesser Town Hall on the corner of Gordon and Wellington streets.
