With early voting centres open on Monday, April 29, the ballot draw for the Australian federal election took place on Wednesday at 12pm.
It is a standard process where workers from the Australian Electoral Commission draw names from a box to determine the order of candidates on the ballot paper.
In the race for Gilmore, the Greens have come up trumps from the ballot draw which took place in Unanderra.
It's been confirmed One Nation will not run, despite flagging an interest in the seat in March.
While in a press conference in Nowra with former Prime Minister John Howard, news broke that Liberal Candidate Warren Mundine's name was drawn last.
Mr Mundine responded with a laugh.
"I feel great, it's a good place to be, it's the reverse donkey vote, that's what I'll be looking for," Mr Mundine said.
"Better than being in the middle," Mr Howard added.
"It's like a lotto in a way, you come where you come," Mr Mundine said.
"No matter what the result, it's about you, and the message you bring to the people of Gilmore."

- Greens Candidate Carmel McCallum
- Independent Candidate Grant Schultz
- United Australia Party Candidate Milton Leslight
- Labor Candidate Fiona Phillips
- Christian Democratic Party Candidate Sarah Kolukulapally
- Nationals Candidate Katrina Hodgkinson
- Liberal Candidate Warren Mundine
