Have a say in sur­vey

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

If you haven’t yet had your say in the Mar­riage Law Postal Sur­vey, now is the time to do it.

The Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics (ABS) said an es­ti­mated 74.5 per cent of sur­vey forms had now been re­ceived, and the sur­vey will close on Novem­ber 7.

Re­sults will be pub­lished on Novem­ber 15.

‘‘While it’s ex­cit­ing to see that 11.9 mil­lion el­i­gi­ble Aus­tralians have now re­turned their sur­veys, we re­ally want to en­cour­age those who haven’t to post them back or sub­mit their paper­less re­sponse now,’’ ABS deputy statis­ti­cian and task­force lead Jonathan Palmer said.

‘‘Through­out the sur­vey, it’s been our aim to make sure every el­i­gi­ble Aus­tralian is given the op­por­tu­nity to have their opin­ion counted.

‘‘That’s why we’re ask­ing peo­ple not to leave it un­til the last minute to get their form back.

‘‘If you don’t get your form back to us in time, it will not be in­cluded in the fi­nal re­sults.’’
