Pre voting could increase by Friday

The federal election is just days away but plenty of locals have already had their say.

Figures released by the Australian Electoral Commission shows that 22,800 people have cast their vote as of Monday night.

That's equivalent to 20.2% of people enrolled to vote in the Bendigo electorate.

Compared to the 2016 election 22.7% of voters cast their vote ahead of time and with pre-polling booths closing on Friday afternoon it's expected that early voter turnout this election will surpass that level.
