Expect to be greeted, courteously, by volunteers from competing political parties.
The Nowra polling booth, at the old Visitor's Information Centre, has been open from 8am-6pm daily since Monday.
On day one, the South Coast Register understands 354 constituents voted in Nowra, 434 voted in Ulladulla and 266 in Kiama.
Next week, the Electoral Commission will also visit hospitals and nursing homes so all locals have the opportunity to vote, including the Shoalhaven Hospital, IRT St Georges Basin, Greenwell Gardens, Dumaresq Nowra, Basin View Masonic Village, Inasmuch Sussex Inlet, IRT Culburra Beach, Coastal Waters and Nowra Private Hospital.
On Tuesday according to Sportsbet, incumbents and Liberal candidates for the South Coast and Kiama had the shortest odds, followed by Labor and then Greens candidates.
Last-minute nominees in the Kiama election race from the Christian Democratic Party and Sustainable Australia were trailing the pack.
