Australia is holding a postal vote for marriage equality!
You should receive your ballot by mail from the Australian Bureau of Statistics no later than September 25. The survey asks one question: “Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?”
Your YES! vote is due to the ABS in the prepaid envelope no later than November 7 at 6pm, so it should be put in the post by October 27!
If you haven’t received your ballot by September 25, you can call 1800-572-113.
More information, including how to vote if you’re overseas, is at the official Marriage Survey website: https://marriagesurvey.abs.gov.au
…and remember, including glitter with your vote will invalidate it!
AS AN AUSTRALIAN PERSON IN THE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY WHO IS TOO YOUNG TO VOTE PLEASE VOTE YES FOR THOSE WHO CANT THIS IS SO IMPORTANT ANYONE WHO IS AUSTRALIAN AND IS ELIGIBLE TO VOTE PLEASE DO!!!!!!
Got my one today. Ticked yes immediately and put it right in the envelope, sealed, all ready to be sent off tomorrow morning! Please do the same.
Reblogging of course, because you have to vote and vote yes. Anything else is doom to Australia ever having marriage equality in some sort of timely fashion. But, having read the comments/notes, I want to clear up some misunderstanding. This is not a vote for granting Australians marriage equality. If the majority of Australia votes yes it does not guarantee marriage equality. This is a tax payer funded non-compulsory (NB: Australia has compulsory voting for actual votes) postal survey (a plebiscite) because the Prime Minister of Australia, Malcom Turnbull, is a moral coward who won’t do his job. And because it’s not a vote the electoral advertising rules don’t apply, which has left the bigoted ‘No’ arseholes free to spew hate and lies, which Ol Turnbull knew would happen, because enough people told him.
And if you don’t want to reblog with my addition, please go and reblog from the source.
