Almost 12,000 votes in Blair, Labor's Shayne Neumann looks a-shoe-in.

Thousands of voters are expected to turn a blind eye to politics on tomorrow's polling day, with a large portion of Ipswich residents having already cast their vote this election.

The Q.T reports the Australian Electoral Commission has recorded record numbers of pre-poll votes, in the three weeks since voting opened.

To date, more than 11,800 people have cast early votes in the Blair electorate.

Labor's Shayne Neumann is widely tipped to hold and quite possibly increase, his 8.1% margin in Blair...while in Oxley, Labor's Milton Dick is expected to do similar.
