Last Chance to Register for the Postal Vote on Marriage
Australia will soon have a postal vote on whether to change the definition of marriage to enable same-sex marriages. This is a change that affects marriage for everyone, and it is important that everyone’s vote counts. If you have moved house, or recently become eligible to vote in Australian elections, you must update your electoral enrolment by 24 August 2017 to participate. Go to the AEC website (http://www.aec.gov.au/) to check or change your registration, or to register online.
