Long Lines Form in Sydney Suburb as Australians Head to the Polls

Millions of Australians headed to the polls on Saturday, May 21, to vote in the country’s first federal election since 2019.

The election sees Liberal Prime Minister Scott Morrison up against Labor Leader Anthony Albanese. Opinion polls suggest Labor will win by a narrow majority, but polls were inaccurate in the last election.
