EARLY voting for the 2015 state general election started on Monday.

Early indications suggest that Queenslanders are embracing the convenience of this facility and turning out in droves to cast their vote prior to polling day.

During the first three days of pre-polling, more than 69,154 electors have cast their vote at pre-poll centres across Queensland.

Wednesday's total was 23,821.

Electoral Commissioner Walter van der Merwe said with the introduction of new legislation, Queensland electors were now taking advantage of the flexibility to cast their vote at a time which suited their busy lifestyle.

All Queensland pre-polling centres will be open for business on Saturday plus the Australia Day public holiday.

Electors are reminded to bring their proof of identity document to cast their vote.
