This black-and-white pen-and-ink sketch depicts voters arriving at a polling station in a state by-election in Mackay, Queensland, on 23 April 1877. The voters arrive in horsedrawn buggies and carriages. Speech bubbles and banners include the slogans 'VOTE for LONG', 'Yah! no slavery!' and 'Beor! and down with Kanaka Labour!' One man at the polling booth appears to be blowing a trumpet and another is waving a hat. A man in the middle of the sketch waves his hat and says, 'Down with the slave trader!'
