Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews has been publicly accused of photoshopping a symbolic ‘exit’ sign from a photo he’s voting for.

But graphic design experts have questioned the claims, made on Twitter by former Liberal Prime Minister Jeff Kennett on Friday.

Mr Kennett tweeted: ‘Look who brushed off the exit sign when they voted privately and then posted their vote on social media.

“Not only did he not have the courage to vote with his constituents, they falsified the image. Says it all, doesn’t it? Certainly on the way out!’

Mr Kennett shared an alternate image showing the green emergency exit sign clearly hanging over Mr Andrews’ head.

However, a graphic design expert suggested to the Daily Mail Australia that all may not be as it seems.

“In our opinion, Dan Andrews didn’t photoshop the exit sign — the photographer’s flash blown all the white out,” she said.

“It looks like someone copied and pasted the exit sign over it.”

Daily Mail Australia has approached Mr Andrews’ office for comment.

It comes after Mr Andrews posted the photo of him voting early on Thursday in Melbourne’s CBD – rather than Mulgrave, the south-east seat of the city he represents.

Critics called him out for not facing his constituents, the prime minister said that he was too busy to vote on Election Day.

“Like so many other Victorians, we have a few things to do on Saturday, so we voted early and are on our way to somewhere else,” Andrews wrote Thursday.

Labor is expected to lose a dozen seats this weekend, which could lead the party to rely on the extremist Greens to stay in power.

Andrews also faces a strong challenge from independent Ian Cook in Mulgrave.

Meanwhile, other signs emerged that Andrews could be ousted from government, as his own voters in the traditional Labor stronghold turned strong on Thursday to support his independent rival.

Daily Mail Australia spoke to dozens of voters in the traditional Labor stronghold of Andrews on Thursday who are voting for his independent rival.

Located just across the highway from Mr Andrews’ polling station, Daily Mail Australia attended the early voting center of the voters to conduct our very own mini poll.

Not a single person polled voted for Mr Andrews.

Between 1pm and 3pm, Daily Mail Australia spoke to a random selection of 35 people, of all ages, genders and backgrounds, as they shot in and around the Noble Park North voting centre.

One of the voters, librarian Tracy Jenkins, said she had always voted for Andrews until now.

“I didn’t go for him this time. Normally yes, but I believe there is a strong presence of another independent here. Mr Cook. I met him today and I’m impressed,” she said.
