Australia same sex marriage survey draws 78.5 percent response rate

Australia same sex marriage survey draws 78.5 percent response rate”

Postal voting in the same sex marriage survey is no longer an option.

A whopping 12.6 million Australians have returned their forms, repressing 78.5 per cent of the eligible voters.

For comparison's sake it shits all over the recent Brexit, Trump and Irish referendum turnouts (which saw 62% for a similar same-sex marriage question) by, like, heaps.

The ABS will receive votes until 4:30pm (6.30pm, NZT).

Same-sex marriage supporters have urged those who have not posted their vote to hand deliver them as the survey deadline looms.

But if the "no" vote gets the most backing then no bill will be introduced.

The Coalition for Marriage sent out a final call to action via it's Freedom Team phone app.

The latest polls suggest more than 60 per cent of people have voted yes.

With the same-sex marriage survey closing this afternoon, the Australian Bureau of Statistics has released the latest figures for participation.

Votes on Tuesday can be dropped off at ABS offices in Sydney, Canberra, Darwin, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Perth.

The ABS will continue to count the votes ahead of announcing the results on Wednesday, November 15. We can only create LGBTIQA+ focused media with your help.

"We knew that there would be damaging elements to this campaign", she said.
