8:00am – Polls have just opened for election day in the Northern Territory.

There has been a tremendous number of votes cast before election day. As of Friday evening, over 75,000 votes have been cast – that includes pre-poll votes, mobile polling in small communities, and postal votes received so far. There will be more postal votes to report.
