High Court of Australia has confirmed the validity of the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.
The Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey will now proceed as planned, with the ABS starting to mail out survey forms from 12 September 2017 onwards.
A final result will be declared by the Australian Statistician at 11.30am on 15 November 2017.
The Government intends to move swiftly now with proposed legislation to provide for relevant additional safeguards to complement existing legal protections and to support the fair and proper conduct of the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.
All Australians on the Electoral Roll and eligible to vote in an election are encouraged to have their say by returning their completed survey forms as soon as possible.
The Government has also called for all those involved in campaigning for either the Yes or No cases to do so with courtesy and respect.
