MORE than 1500 council hopefuls will go head-to-head tomorrow as Queenslanders vote for their local government representatives.

While there are less candidates this year compared to the last election - 1531 compared to 1634 in 2008 - this election is expected to yield significant changes with a high turnover rate forecast across many councils.

APN NewsDesk reporter Ava Benny-Morrison will be at the Local Government Association of Queensland headquarters in Brisbane throughout Saturday night to provide live coverage of the election count in the 73 council areas.

The LGAQ will set up a tally room for media from 6pm.

Ms Benny-Morrison will use Twitter to provide up-to-the-minute details on election results and commentary from LGAQ members and successful candidates. The feed will be streamed on APN newspaper websites.
