What Not to Do to Your Same-Sex Marriage Survey If You Want Your Vote to Count
Never thought we'd have to cover a topic like this in 2017, but it's 2017 and here we are.
It's time for Australians to vote in the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey to help decide if the law should be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry. Starting this week, Australians who are enrolled to vote will receive their ballots in the mail and will have until October 27 to send it back to make sure their vote is counted.
As with any postal or paper vote, if they're not completed correctly they will be marked invalid and won't be counted, which would be a damn shame. To help you make your vote count, this is how to fill out your ballot the right way, according to the ABS.
- Use a dark pen.
- Clearly mark only one box.
- Put only your form in the Reply Paid envelope and put it in the mail immediately. No stamp required!
