It’s not an election day without a democracy sausage and in news that should give voters a collective sigh of relief, is that the second-most revered kind of sausie has been given the green light.

With less than four weeks until polling day, the democracy sausage has been made exempt from WA’s COVID-19 restrictions.

School principals have received health advice ruling in favour of sausage sizzles on Saturday, March 13.

Cake stalls are also good to go.

“We have been advised fundraising activities, such as sausage sizzles or cake stalls, are not required to implement a COVID-safe plan or maintain contact tracing registers,” a letter template from the Ed Dept for schools’ P&C and others keen to hold a stall on the day reads.

“However, if you intend to hold a fundraising stall, you may consider to voluntarily comply with these measures to help keep our community healthy and safe.”

If you’re at all concerned about attending a polling place on the day, the WA Electoral Commission says to consider voting by postal vote or at an early voting centre.
