Same sex marriage survey in Australia gets underway

Apple backs marriage equality campaign in Australia Same-sex marriage poll finds 70% in favour

Australia has launched a postal vote on whether to legalise same-sex marriage.

"What we want is to see Australians united in marriage equality and united in fairness for all Australians", she said. It includes the Australian Christian Lobby and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia.

"We've had the world's longest engagement", Long said.

"That holds true whether you are pulling on pads for the first time in community cricket, representing your country, volunteering your time or working for a cricket organisation".

The deadline is November 7th for postal ballots to be returned with results expected on November 25th, the Marriage Act could be amended as quickly as the end of the year if enough support is shown to change the law as it stands.

"I think people find happiness in all different ways".

But "yes" campaigners have warned that the method of collecting votes, via the postal system, could be less effective at engaging younger tech-savvy Australians, who are seen as more supportive of changing the laws.

"I do believe some sports have spoken about certain matters, but because a lot of them are not an owned entity, and they are commission (s) and federation (s), there are a lot of politics involved", he said.

The result was consistent with previous polls in recent years which have shown around two-thirds of Australians support gay marriage.

"It might be as a junior, as a volunteer, as a match official or as an NRL player". It is also criticized by same-sex marriage supporters who say the survey is needless and that the debate should go straight to parliament.

"Now that the decision on marriage equality is so close, it would be empowering to think that this [rally] could cause such a great change for our nation", Copley said.

The government and opposition are negotiating on details of legislation to be passed by Parliament this week that would penalize campaigners who resort to hate speech during the two-month survey.

In the wake of that, Australian sports officials vowed to tackle the issue, with some striking a more progressive tone than others.
