MAYORAL RACE: Voting starts today

LESS than 18 months since Ipswich last went to the polls to decide who would lead the city, voting in the Ipswich Mayoral by-election starts today.

Four pre-poll booths will fold out their carboard booths from this morning for those who already know who they're going to vote for.

Last election more than 90% of the 120,000 electors opted to risk the polling day queues in exchange for a sausage on bread and fundraiser cupcake while the rest voted at either pre-polls, by post or other kinds of voting.

Polling day for the 2017 Ipswich Mayoral by-election is on August 19.
