Tasmanians, especially young Tasmanians, should enrol to vote and make sure their details are correct, so they can be ready if the postal survey on marriage equality goes ahead, Greens Senator for Tasmania Nick McKim says.
“There’s never been a better time than right now to check that you’re on the electoral roll and that all your details are up to date,” Senator McKim said.
“Tell your friends, tell your family, tell your neighbours. One in four young people are not enrolled to vote. Make sure your whole household has checked their enrolment and they are ready to go.”
“We hope this shonky postal survey is knocked off by the upcoming court challenges, but as many people as possible need to be on the roll just in case it isn’t.”
“This postal survey has been designed by the enemies of equality - people like Eric Abetz who have built their careers on degrading LGBTIQ people.”
“But he is part of a small and shrinking minority, and together we can show that love truly is more powerful than hate.”
