Member for Riverina and Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack has drawn top spot on the ballot paper for the upcoming federal election.

The ballot draw was held in Wagga Wagga on Wednesday night ahead of the May 18 election.

Mr McCormack was followed by the Greens' Michael Bayles, Labor Party's Mark Jeffreson and United Australia's Richard Foley.

Mr McCormack reminded constituents about his work in improving infrastructure, health and economies across the electorate.

"I've been delivering for the Riverina since I was elected in 2010," he said.

"You only have to look at the record amount of funding that we've invested in hospitals, in schools."
