8 places to get a snag or cake on polling day

THE humble democracy sausage or cake somehow gives us something special to look forward to when carrying out our voting duties.

Co-creator of online polling booth sausage sizzle movement Democracy Sausage Annette Tyler says grabbing a quick sausage in bread is what elections are all about.

"Many people are keen on the idea of a democracy sausage, it's just one of those traditions on election day,” Ms Tyler said.

"People are often disappointed if they go to a polling booth and miss their sausage.”

Locals in Bundaberg, Burnett and Callide won't need to miss theirs though.

Here's a handy list of eight local booths where you can grab a sausage or cake while having your say.
