That looks like vandalism to me. I folded my ballot sheet such that my vote was on the inside and couldn't be read by torchlight.

I wonder how many people will toss it in the 'gunna' pile and just forget about it?
because it drags on for so long vs an election on a specific day.
Brexit only got 72% vote.

I haven't received my survey papers as yet but regardless I will make sure that my YES vote will be submitted.
Like anyone who WANTS to vote, I can request a replacement survey from the ABS.
We have until the 7th November to have the survey returned before the decision will become official on the 15th November 2017!

USE YOUR VOTE CAREFULLY!

Thank you dream.
Where did you get this dream.
I doubt I will never convince people who vote no.
Still cannot see the, problem. Only a minority within a minority will actually marry.
Overseas the gay marriages have not hurt anyone and the lies and distortions are extraordinary
The gay community are a minority and all they want is equality. The survey is cruel, and a waste of money. Gay folk never wanted this. All they can do is rely on compassion and the Aussie fair go.
Some will see I deleted most of this post .

I like your post DW but if you consider the wealth that sits below the NO voters then we (Australia) are on the right side!
Looking at the YES voters you'll note that 3/4 of them are broke!
:heeheehee :heeheehee :heeheehee

Nevertheless, I am voting "YES" simply because it is the only way that can make all people happy but also because

"Money can't buy happiness!"......... common sense can!

These debates are now just a waste of time. Considering that it is a voluntary plebiscite, many will not vote, so it stands to reason that the vast majority who want to vote will have already done so. Personally, I would prefer to stifle debate and discussion at this point until the votes are counted and the decision announced - what point in flogging a deceased (or very ill) horse? Only anger, vitriol insult and division can come from further discussion at this late stage.

It was totally unnecessary, and the period for polling is far too long. Everyone but a few activists seems fed up with whole issue.

Think I will edit this.
There was a cunning agenda behind the long long period of time. It was to get that scare program rolling. Very disappointed with Q and A. While Magda is lovely would have preferred David Marr. That no woman was pathetic.
If pathetic is a bit str ong for some at least we can agree she was clearly out of her depth. That is the verdict even from the conservatives. Thought I better clarify I am referring to Karina Okotel. I know the Libs like her, she is the scretary after all but she was confused and lost. Even she did not believe her agenda.
Magda was actually very impressive.
It was all so respectful ...all about repecting the right of some to say others are not worhy of equality.

That no woman had a different view to you Mavis. Why does that make her pathetic?

Like others have suggested,this debate has been going on for too long. Last night's Q&A was almost 2 months late.

Looks like Michael Caton might have the early signs of Parkinsons.
