Dear Residential aged care provider,
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is surveying all Australians on the Commonwealth Electoral Roll to get their views about whether the law should be changed to allow same sex couples to marry.
This is a voluntary survey. However, the ABS would like every eligible Australian to have an opportunity to participate and have their say. While it is expected that most eligible people in Australia will be able to participate using the postal service, the ABS will implement a number of additional strategies for people who may not be able to complete a postal survey.
Residents of Aged Care facilities may complete the survey independently through the postal service, by requesting the assistance of someone they trust, or through a paperless response.
