Big pre-poll jump
More than one in four Mallee voters have already cast their ballots.
Latest Australian Electoral Commission figures show 24.3 per cent of people have voted at pre-poll with another day to go before Saturday's election.
This is more than double the pre-poll figure in 2019.
Adding in postal votes at 11.7 per cent of electors, and anywhere up to half the electorate will have voted before Saturday.
