PHOTO controversies, weddings, mudslinging and name calling - the Bundaberg Regional Council election has had a bit of it all in the past month of the campaign.
But everything is now out of the candidates' hands as voters head to the poll to make their decision today.
With reports of large portions of the region casting pre-poll votes, all four mayoral candidates were feeling confident they had done all they could.
"I am just praying for it not to rain," Bundaberg mayor Lorraine Pyefinch said.
Cr Pyefinch said she had been disappointed by the seemingly "dirty campaigning" going on across the region in recent weeks.
"I know that my councillors have done a good job in difficult circumstances," she said.
Former Isis Shire mayor Bill Trevor acknowledged he had started his campaign late.
"I think I took a week or two to get going a bit, but I've pick up ground in the past week," he said.
Former Bundaberg City deputy mayor Mal Forman said he had been "quite pleased" with how the campaign had gone.
"I've had a lot of interest from people," he said.
"It's been quite clean from my part."
Moore Park Beach businessman Leo Karnauchow said he was not sure how the votes would fall.
"There are a lot of people who want to vote with the traditional way," he said.
"But there are a lot of people in the younger generation who just want the fresh blood in there now."
Some divisional candidates said they too had been disappointed by "dirty tactics" and the use of photographs in campaign material that were a misrepresentation.
