ELECTION: Frecklington returned as MP, Labor back in office

UPDATE 9.45PM: While there was early success for Deb Frecklington tonight, with the opposition leader claiming an early win in her seat of Nanango, the rest of the results haven't been that positive. 

Despite increasing her primary vote from the 2017 election (as of 9.45pm), the LNP will remain in opposition for four years. 

Labor has been returned to power for a third term, with pollsters now waiting to determine whether it will be a minority or a majority government. 

The news was even worse for One Nation, with a huge swing against the party across the state, which was mirrored in Nanango. 

One Nation candidate Tony Scrimshaw is sitting with just 14.76 per cent, a massive fall from the party's 27.44 per cent in 2017. 

Labor appears to have picked up much of these votes, with Mark Stapleton sitting in second place on primary votes with 28.16 per cent - well above the party's 19.27 per cent 2017 results. 

EARLIER 7.30PM Early results show One Nation's vote has collapsed, in results that are being mirrored across the state. 

Tony Scrimshaw is currently sitting on just 13.22 per cent of primary votes, a massive drop from the One Nation's result of 27.4 per cent in 2017. 

EARLIER 7PM: After just one hour of counting - it appears the leader of the opposition and incumbent MP Deb Frecklington will retain her seat as expected. 

With 14.85 per cent of the vote counted, Mrs Frecklington is well ahead of her opponents on 49.73 per cent of primary votes. 

Labor's Mark Stapleton is her closest rival, currently sitting with 28.18 per cent. 

One Nation's Tony Scrimshaw rounds out the top three on just 13.24 per cent. 

Both the Courier Mail and ABC predicting the seat for an LNP retain. 

EARLIER: WE'RE just minutes away from polls closing across the state for the 2020 Queensland election.

This election has been tight from the very beginning, and it's likely the results will come down to the wire to determine who will lead the state for the next four years.

This year has also seen one of the biggest pre-poll turnouts in Queensland history with about half of all voters casting their ballots before today.
