Australia has chosen love and voted YES!

Australia has chosen love and voted YES!

We’ve just heard from the ABS Chief Statistician that, not only has Australia voted YES, but an overwhelming 61.6% of voters have supported marriage equality.

Together, our community has achieved this incredible result. No matter where you live, you now know that your country has voted for equality.

Thanks to today's result we're right on the brink of a major historic reform, and the question on everyone’s mind is: what happens next? 

LGBTI activists and allies like you have done the hard work to make sure a huge numbers of voters returned their survey - and it worked.

Now it is Parliament's turn. Watch and share our message about what happens next. 

Soon, a free vote will be held in Parliament and we Greens are ready to turn this postal vote result into law.

Thank you for everything you have done to make a YES result possible.

In just a few short months, we have come together in one of biggest people-powered movements this country has ever seen. For this, we say thank you.

As all eyes turn to Canberra, the Greens will be there every step of the way to make sure we have marriage equality in this country before the end of the year.
