AUSTRALIAN Marriage Law Survey forms should begin arriving in mailboxes shortly, with the first surveys arriving on September 12.

The survey, which is being conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, is seeking Australians’ views on whether or not the law should be changed to allow same sex couples to marry.

Forms will be mailed to everyone on the Commonwealth Electoral Roll. The package will include a reply paid envelope and instructions on how to complete the form. Eligible people who will not be at their enrolled address during the mailout period should arrange to have their mail forwarded or can contact the Australian Marriage Law Survey information line to arrange for a form to be sent to their nominated address.

Only one survey form will be accepted for each eligible Australian.

Forms should be completed and posted by 6pm October 27. Surveys received after 6pm November 7 will not be accepted.

  • Information line, 1800-572-113, 8am-8pm.
