Australia Votes Yes

I would be grateful if any of you who follow my blog are Australian and can explain what a postal vote is. This seems like positive news in a period of American history that is going backward rather than forward.

Australians have voted for marriage equality, according to a new poll.

The country is currently voting on whether marriage rights should be extended to same-sex couples in a non-binding postal vote.

Sky News Australia found major support for marriage equality in a new a poll of more than 5,000 Australians.

64% of respondents said they had already voted ‘yes’ to the proposal and sent their forms back.

The results suggest a landslide win for the pro-LGBT campaign, with just 15.5% of respondents saying they have sent back their votes for ‘no’.

Overall, the latest poll of 16 million Australian voters indicates a victory of 79% for the ‘yes’ campaign.
