Federal election 2022: Eight candidates for Longman

An artist, a chef and an electrician are among the candidates vying to win the House of Representatives seat of Longman at the May 21 Federal Election.

They are just eight of the 1624 candidates who nominated for the election nationally.

Longman is named after of Irene Maud Longman, the first woman elected to the Queensland Parliament and at the time only the third woman elected to any Parliament in Australia.

Mrs Longman was actively involved in issues relating to the family, women and mental health.

Longman is considered marginal, with a swing of just 3.28 percent needed for a change of MP.

Printing begins

Electoral Commissioner Tom Rogers says yesterday represented a milestone in the huge, complex logistical operation that is the 2022 federal election, with early voting starting on Monday, May 9.

“Approximately 60 million ballot papers can now be printed and distributed in the coming days,” Mr Rogers says.

“This is an enormous task that enables our 8000 voting venues and 105,000 temporary election workers to provide access for Australian voters.”

“At the same time, we’re ensuring each venue has the appropriate COVID safety measures in place and people can feel comfortable to come and vote.”

“It really is one of the largest and most complex peacetime logistical events conducted in Australia, and now is when it all comes together ahead of early voting starting on Monday 9 May.”
