Voting in Australia’s same-sex marriage postal survey closes tomorrow, November 7, with the results announced the following Tuesday, November 15.
If you haven’t sent back your form, it’s way too late to pop it in the post, but there is one way you can still make your vote count, although it will involve a trip to the CBD in your capital city to hand deliver your ballot.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) announced last week that nearly 12.3 million Australians – 77% of eligible voters – had sent back their ballots by October 27, an increase of 400,000 from the previous previous week, and the ABS offices in Canberra, Sydney, Darwin, Brisbane, Perth, Hobart and Geelong are open tomorrow to take ballot papers from anyone who wants to hand-deliver them.
The bad news for Victorians is that the Melbourne office is closed on Tuesday for the Melbourne Cup – it’s a public holiday in the city, so the only solution there is to head to the Geelong office
The offices are open 8.30am to 4.30pm local time.
