SURVEY SHOWS LGBTIQ AUSTRALIANS ARE OVERWHELMING OPPOSED TO A POSTAL VOTE
LGBTI Australians strongly oppose a postal vote on marriage equality.
That's the finding of a new survey of the LGBTI community.
The survey of 5,261 LGBTI Australians across all demographics was commissioned by Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays and just.equal, and conducted by social science researcher, Dr Sharon Dane.
It found almost 80% opposition to a postal vote which increased to almost 90% when respondents were informed it would be a voluntary vote that won't be binding on MPs.
The survey also asked respondents their preferred response to a postal vote, with 56.5% saying they oppose it but are also prepared to win it if it is held. Only 15% said they prefer to boycott the vote.
