It’s unfathomable to believe that in 2017 we are even having a conversation about marriage equality, let alone wasting taxpayers money on a vote to decide wether it should become ‘legal’ or not.
But that’s democracy for you.
KarryOn believes that marriage equality should be a basic human right for all individuals and stands loudly and proudly aside all members of the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual) community, especially within the travel industry.
The Australian Electoral Commission’s deadline to enrol for this vote is midnight on Thursday, August 24, so time is rapidly running out to make sure you are enrolled and good to go.
Because alarmingly, according to the AEC, more than half a million people between the ages of 18 and 39 are not even on the electoral role – which of course means they can’t vote. Hopefully you’re not one of them.
Are you enrolled? Are you sure?
If you’re not sure, the time is now to update your details and get ready to vote YES.
And while you’re at it, share this story with your friends, family and colleagues too so they can make their vote heard too.
HOW DO YOU DO IT?
ENROLLING IS SOOOO SIMPLE.
1) Enrol to vote HERE.
2) Update your details HERE.
3) Call the Australian Bureau of Statistics on 1800 572 113 where an operator can confirm your enrolment and postage address over the phone.
If you’re overseas, you can still call the ABS on +61 2 6252 5262.
So C’mon Trave Industry, let’s not leave anything to chance here. You have the power to make a difference and ensure all of your LGBTQIA friends have the same basic human rights as you do.
Love, the KarryOn team.
