ABS to visit Ceduna for Marriage Law vote

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will be visiting Ceduna next week to ensure people can have their say on the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.

The Ceduna visit will take place from Tuesday, October 17 to Thursday, October 19 at Ceduna Foodland between 8:30am and 4:30pm, but closed between 12pm and 12:30pm.

ABS deputy statistician and taskforce lead Jonathan Palmer said the pick-up site would be staffed with authorised ABS officers to help people unable to receive a survey form by post.

Eligible voters who have not received a survey form or who need a replacement can collect a new survey form after verifying their identity.

“Providing this service will help all eligible Australians have their say in the voluntary postal survey regardless of where they live,” he said.

“Completed survey forms can be posted using the reply paid envelope via the nearest post office or red post box, or submitted to an ABS authorised officer at a registered pick-up location.”

Friday, October 20 is the final day for requesting or picking up replacement survey forms, or for requesting a secure access code to access telephone and online response options.
