The Marriage Equality plebiscite is a farce.

We’ve heard stories of dumped and stolen ballots, intentional fraudulence and seen the widespread distribution of hateful propaganda, in extreme excess of the ‘respectful debate’ promised by the Turnbull government.

The government promised that integrity would be protected in this non-compulsory, non-binding ballot on the future of equality in this country. We’re holding them to account. The Australian Progressives have submitted a Freedom of Information request regarding measures taken to protect the integrity of the ballot.

Our FOI request is here, along with our media release on the issue.

If political interests have been allowed to skewer the plebiscite results, we will have the evidence. Love is love. Truth is truth. We will continue to stand by our LGBTQI brothers and sisters in the pursuit of fairness, rights and equality.
