It isn't often opposing politicians in a state election agree but Maitland's candidates are united over their frustrations with High Street's pre-poll office.
The candidates spoke with the Mercury venting their woes over dangerous congestion, lack of parking and limited disability access.
Incumbent Member for Maitland Jenny Aitchison said the candidates had raised worries over the site and "lower number votes" through the polls.
"We've been really concerned. We have seen people in wheelchairs and walkers having to navigate around corners, particularly when the school kids are around.
"If a school bus comes, then they have to cut the corner because the streets are so narrow. We have the potential for a fatality.
"It's disappointing because this was an issue at the last election."
Candidates cannot legally stand within six metres of a pre-polling office or polling booth.
Liberal candidate and councillor Sally Halliday said an auditor from the NSW Electoral Commission had visited the site.
"They've said that unfortunately we won't be able to move for this election but they will be submitting a report about the disability access and parking," she said.
The Church of Christ in Green Hills has been used in previous federal and council elections. All the candidates said people needed to be reminded that they could vote online or via post and people with limited mobility were encouraged to park around the back of the building.
But the NSW Electoral Commission spokesperson said the agency "selects the most suitable venues from those that are available".
"The NSW Electoral Commission does not comment on specific compliance matters or whether it is, or is not, conducting an investigation," the spokesperson said.
"Venue considerations are extensive and include size, location, accessibility, amenities, street frontage, deliveries, internet connectivity, and work, health and safety (WHS) considerations.
"Another property was inspected on High Street, but it failed WHS requirements for electors and staff.
"The Maitland Election Manager's Office at 301 High Street, Maitland is the most suitable venue the NSW Electoral Commission could hire.
"The venue is accessible and it has two designated accessible parking spaces at the rear, which is accessed via Victoria Street."
