Marriage equality activists are reminding Australians that today is the last chance to order a replacement form or secure access code in the marriage equality postal survey.

All requests must be submitted by 6 pm today.

Olympic legend and Equality Campaign Ambassador Daniel Kowalski encouraged everyone to make their vote count.

“Anyone who has a spoiled or damaged survey or has yet to receive their survey in the post needs to order a replacement by [today],” Kowalski said.

“If you’ve lost your survey form, or if you need to vote from overseas, don’t miss this final chance to make your ‘yes’ vote count and have your voice heard.

“While almost 11 million surveys have been returned, there are millions of surveys still out there so it’s important to get every possible ‘yes’ vote in the mail by October 27.”

Angie Greene of the Equality Campaign said, “Participating in the survey provides everyone with an opportunity to shape Australia as a fairer and more equal place for all.

“Time is also running out for the more than a million Australians who are working or travelling overseas to make their voices heard by asking a trusted friend to fill out and return the survey on their behalf or by voting online with a secure access code. It is vital that no Australian misses out.

“There are many surveys still outstanding so post yours and remind your friends and family to do the same. You can find the nearest post box online.

“Supporters of equality and fairness cannot be complacent. We urge anyone who has misplaced their survey form or has had it damaged to contact the ABS to request a replacement form by [today].”

To order a replacement form or secure access code, voters can order a form or code online, call the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey information line on 1800 572 113 (8 am to 8 pm), or visit a pickup location in all capital cities.
