Australians are obsessed with a good old fashioned sausage sizzle.

So much so that one dedicated meat eater has taken the time to create a website that maps out the closest election sausage sizzle in electorates around the country.

Unfortunately, there are no sizzles listed on the website for the Page and Richmond electorates.

Don't let that turn you vegetarian, because Lismore High School has got Page covered and there are also a host of sausage sizzles being held at other primary schools around the area.

For those voting in Page, the Lismore High School P&C will be providing a sausage sizzle outside their polling hall for famished voters this Saturday.

The election sausage sizzle is one of Lismore High's biggest fundraisers of the year and they hope that it will not only give those voting some reprieve from the political mayhem, but showcase the school.

They plan to put the money raised toward P&C initiatives.

Lismore High maths teacher and organiser of Saturday's sausage sizzle Daniela Elford said the volunteers won't only be flipping snags, but serving coffee, cakes and canned drinks. "We're having real hand-pressed coffee and a delicious cake stall, so people can come along even if they're not voting," she said.

"We'd also love people to come and see how the school's going and how much it's improved."

Ms Elford said she had been more concerned with choosing which sausages to cook on Saturday than which party to vote for.

"I've barely decided who I'm voting for, I've been too busy thinking about the sausage sizzle," she said.

The Lismore High School P&C and teachers will be serving coffee, sausages and cakes from 8am to 2pm.

Lismore High School is located in Dalley St, East Lismore.
