Anthony Albanese has pressed the flesh at a polling station in Higgins, meeting voters and a bunch of dogs in the Victorian marginal Liberal seat that Labor wants to win.
Labor leader was swamped by volunteers and voters for photos and handshakes shortly after the polls opened. Labor candidate Michelle Ananda-Rajah met a cavoodle called Bismarck wearing a Labor button, a black greyhound in a red jacket, and dozens of Labor supporters chanting ALBO, ALBO Albanese worked the queue of voters, picking out parents and kids to talk to. He high-fived a young girl whose mum said she was voting for the future on issues like climate change.
A Liberal Democrats volunteer greeted him at the gate, as he told her good on you for participating in our democracy Liberal party volunteers brandishing signs for Higgins incumbent Katie Allen yelled what is the unemployment rate? Just as he left, a Liberal-shirted man ran across the road with a Bluetooth speaker, pumping the dance remix of the hole in your bucket song and dancing as Albanese's car took off.
On Tuesday, both Scott Morrison and Albanese revealed their sausage sandwich preferences.
The Labor leader says he soff bread, but sometimes I have double sausage you get more sausage than bread. He added that he garnished his sausage with onions and BBQ sauce.
Morrison said he took his with tomato sauce.
