You owe it to posterity to vote on same-sex marriage

YOUR SAY: THOSE from both sides of the same-sex-marriage debate have been knocking on doors to influence people to vote their way.

However the door knockers have discovered that a large number of people have not bothered to fill in their postal ballot one way or the other.

This is a clear demonstration of the usual Australian apathy that seems to have gripped the minds of far too many people across the land.

Not only on the SSM debate, but a host of other issues as well.

It is imperative that all Aussies have their say on this important and revolutionary issue.

Don't be like the Irish with their SSM referendum in which up to 40 per cent of Irish voters failed to register a vote.

You owe it to posterity to vote one way or the other. So, don't delay, do your civic duty - today.

JAY NAUSS, Glen Aplin
