Bathurst's pre-polling centre has experienced a signifcant rise in voter turnout in comparison to the previous federal election.
As of Monday, just over 8300 people had paid a visit to the pre-polling centre on Howick Street to cast their vote for this weekend's federal election.
On the Monday before the 2016 federal election, the number of pre-poll voters was just shy of 6300.
Returning officer Stuart Evennett said the statistics reflect the changing nature of voting in the Bathurst community.

"The regular working week isn't nine to five, Monday to Friday anymore, and the pre-polling centre has allowed voters to avoid the queues this weekend," Mr Evennett said.
"We've had a favourable turnout, and every voter has been able to use the centre with ease."
Across the Calare electorate, 23,882 votes had been cast at pre-polling stations as of Monday.
The figure constitutes around 20 per cent of registered voters in the electorate.
