Your Vote Could Make the Difference

This election the Greens only need 243 new votes to win Central Ward - which we'll use to transform Brisbane by freezing rents, putting a levy on vacant homes, and making property developers pay their fair share.

Your vote this election is incredibly powerful.

This page hosts all the information you need to vote: polling locations, early voting times and location, how to postal vote, and our suggested how-to-vote. It will be regularly updated as we get closer to the election and more information is released by the Electoral Commission of Queensland

The 2024 local government election will be held on Saturday March 16. 

How to vote Green

How your preferences go will be entirely up to you. With changes to voting rules in recent years, no party is able to direct your vote to somewhere you don't want it to go. This means how you number your ballot paper is where your vote goes. Our recommendation is below, but it is just that – a recommendation.

Fortunately in the Central Ward the Greens are likely to have a high enough vote that our preferences aren’t distributed, so voting 1 Green will likely just mean your vote only goes to the Greens. We only need an extra 243 votes to win the seat.

Enrolling to Vote / Updating your Enrolment
