Have a say in survey
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.’’
