Man Accused Of Indecently Exposing Himself At Polling Booth

A man -- believed to be a United Australia Party volunteer -- has been fined for allegedly exposing himself at a polling booth in Sydney's southwest.

Police were called to Restwell Street in Bankstown about 10am on Saturday after being told a 62-year-old man had been involved in a dispute with several people.

"It's alleged the man then committed an offensive act," a spokeswoman told AAP on Saturday.

He was issued an infringement notice for offensive conduct as well as a move-on direction.

It's understood he was campaigning for Clive Palmer's United Australia Party.

He said he will "look into it", adding such behaviour was "not acceptable".
