Two-thirds of Australians have voted in the country’s ballot on same-sex marriage.They are currently making a historic decision on whether to redefine marriage to include same-sex couple’s or not. The Australian Bureau of Statistics, which is responsible for the vote, confirmed that almost 70% of Australians have said their words. With just weeks until the November 7 deadline for ballots, the ABS today confirmed it had received 10.8 million forms, which means that only 32% of eligible voters are yet to vote. Speaking to Sky News, Tiernan Brady of the Equality Campaign said he believed we’ve “confidently won the argument”. Despite intensive campaigning from the ‘No’ camp, he said: “I think the Australian people have seen through it… I think the public have made their mind up.” Even though there is a splash of hate crimes and ‘no’ campaigners try their best not to let gay marriages being legalized, most Australians said their word and we hope this word is ‘yes’.
