Co­me­dian’s plea for tick and post

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS -

CO­ME­DIAN Magda Szuban­ski hopes Aus­tralians can “find it in their hearts” to vote yes in the same-sex mar­riage postal sur­vey.

“I’m not in the busi­ness of try­ing to per­suade any­one of do­ing any­thing they don’t want to do,” Szuban­ski said at the Mel­bourne “yes” launch of Get Out The Vote yes­ter­day.

“(But) I just hope peo­ple can find it in their hearts to un­der­stand where we’re com­ing from, which is about . . . for the peo­ple who want mar­riage equality it’s about strength­en­ing mar­riage.”

She urged peo­ple to not put the vot­ing bal­lot aside, but send it back in the post as soon as pos­si­ble.

“Our great con­cern is that peo­ple will get lost in a bunch of bills. So please, take it down to a post box and just send it,” Szuban­ski said.
