Like Australians everywhere, Cootamundra voters love the Australian Electoral Commission's new, less strict approach to early voting.
On its first two days of operation, Saturday and Monday, the town's pre-polling booth at Dickson Hall received more than 1,000 visits from voters eager to get it done and dusted.
Given the booths are open for eight hours a day, that's an average of just on a voter a minute coming through the doors, a level of early voting far greater than in previous elections.
As 7.30's Laura Tingle put it, you used to need "a letter from your Mum" or some such to be approved for early voting - now it's just a matter of say so.
Other changes since the 2016 federal election are that electoral officials no longer have to cross you off the electoral roll with a pen and ruler.
It's now done by computer: your name and address are typed in and you're digitally marked off once you're given your papers.
And the digital age has streamlined absentee voting.
Officials no longer have to keep copies of voting papers from every House of Reps electorate: just state your address, and the appropriate voting paper is printed out on a green slip. Voting on election day in Cootamundra will be at Coota High School in Poole Street and Coota Public School in Cooper Street. Dickson Hall will be open for absentee voters.
Riverina candidates, in alphabetical order, are Michael Bayles (Greens), Richard Foley (United Australia Party), Michael Jeffreson (ALP) and the sitting member and deputy prime minister Michael McCormack (LNP).
Cootamundra has received scant attention during the campaign, with only brief visits made by Foley (once) and Jeffreson (twice), a low-profile visit to a local business by McCormack and as far as we can ascertain none by Bayles.
