Local have their say on gay marriage poll

August 11, 2017

Six Goulburn Valley residents have had their say on the proposed postal plebiscite on marriage equality.

The result from a $122 million vote will be announced on November 15, but many of those interviewed said it was a delay tactic that just “needed to get done”.

The Turnbull Government was forced to adopt the option, after the Senate rejected a bid for a compulsory plebiscite on Wednesday.

The decision follows tensions earlier this week, in which Liberal MPs voted in favour of a plebiscite, amid a party split.
