Family with 3 kids

The Australian Government has announced there will be a postal plebiscite on whether the definition of marriage in the Marriage Act 1961 should be changed to include “same-sex marriage”.

Ballot papers will be sent out to households on Tuesday, 12 September and all votes must be received back by Tuesday, 7 November. (ABS strongly encourages eligible Australians to return the completed survey to the ABS address on the return envelope by 6pm on 27 October 2017. ABS cannot accept surveys received at the address after 6pm on 7 November 2017.)

If you are not enrolled to vote, or if you need to update your postal address, or check if you’re enrolled to vote, go to www.aec.gov.au/enrol/ before the cut-off date of Thursday, 24 August.

Vote No, and let’s keep marriage as a unique relationship between a woman and a man.
