Joshua Jones and Latisha Weldon were among the first of what's expected to be a record number of early voters casting their vote in the 2019 federal election.
The Dubbo couple said they got their voting "over and done with" on Monday to avoid the bigger crowds expected to come as polling day approaches on May 18.
"We're going away and wanted to get it over and done with before it gets way too packed," Ms Weldon said.
"We weren't standing in the line long at all."
The 22-year-olds said Mark Coulton, the current Nationals MP for the Parkes electorate, got their vote.
"Because they're the country party," Mr Jones said when asked why.
While six candidates are vying to win the seat of Parkes, only two had volunteers handing out how-to-vote cards for them on Monday at Dubbo's early voting centre in the old Commonwealth Bank building on Macquarie Street.
Several loyal National Party supporters and dedicated, but lone, Labor backer Phil Priest tried to woo voters as they went in to the early voting centre on Monday.
"Party workers must be six metres from polling place building entrances," Erin Eames, the Australian Electoral Commission's (AEC) divisional office manager said.
"If there are concerns, or you believe people aren't adhering, you can report it to the AEC."
After 12,353 people voted early in Dubbo ahead of the 2016 federal election, Ms Eames said the AEC expected, and has prepared for, a record number of people to vote early this time around.
"As the election gets closer we'll see staff numbers increase as more people tend to vote closer to the election date," she said.
Eight hundred staff are being employed by the AEC to ensure every voter in the electorate has the chance to have their say.
"That number includes count staff, mobile teams [going into remote communities], early voting staff and polling place officials working on polling day," Ms Eames said.
Early voting centre opening times vary and voters are encouraged to visit the AEC website for detailed information.
