Supporting people who are experiencing homelessness to participate in the postal vote on Australian Marriage Law can be achieved by-
- Collecting a survey form from one of the ABS pickup locations; (The locations will be advertised and available on the ABS website)
- Requesting a survey form be posted to the address of a trusted person to hold the form for them to collect; (A ‘trusted person’ is described in detail on the ABS website)
- Contacting the ABS through the Information Line or the ABS website to complete the survey online, via the automated telephony service or via a call centre.
The extended period that forms are available for pick up, from 25 September to 20 October 2017, provides greater access to forms than is possible in the Census where all people experiencing homelessness need to complete a form on Census night.
You can call the Information Line on 1800 572 113 (8am-8pm, 7 days per week) or go to the ABS website for further details.
