Standing up for Canberra

Today's the day for Canberrans to Vote Yes

We are in the final days of this expensive, divisive postal survey on marriage equality.

The survey closes on 7 November, but today is the final day Canberrans should mail their survey to ensure it is counted.

According to Australian Bureau of Statistics, 12 million surveys have been returned so far.

This is the one thing keeping Yes campaigners awake at night – the realisation that millions of votes may simply never get posted.

A recent poll conducted by The Australian showed almost 60 percent of those who had already voted had ticked “yes”. But this lead has steadily decreased over the course of the campaign.

Yes voters can’t afford to be complacent.

Roughly two million people across Australia under the age of 35, most who say they would vote yes, have yet to actually send their survey.

I am calling on all Canberrans, especially young Canberrans, to get out and post their survey today.

Don’t delay.

Vote yes for marriage equality in Australia.
