ALIA NGAC submission in response to the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey, August 2017

Description

This submission to the ALIA Board of Directors from the ALIA New Generation Advisory Committee (NGAC) discusses the government's plans for postal vote regarding regarding same-sex marriage. The postal plebiscite will be conducted on a voluntary basis and a final result will be secured by 15 November 2017. 
 
While there are many issues concerning the validity of the postal plebiscite including the integrity of the electoral roll, voter fraud, lost ballots and votes being administered by the Australian Bureau of Statistics without protections of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918; like many MPs and concerned Australian citizens, fundamentally the ALIA New Generation Advisory Committee (NGAC) feels that this process is going to hurt LGBTQIA+ people.
