Australia votes yes to same-sex marriage postal survey result

At 10am on Wednesday the result of the $122 million same-sex marriage survey will be known, and Tasmanians on both sides of the issue are preparing for the outcome.

With an 80 per cent response rate the government’s question on whether the law should be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry could be emphatically answered. 

Some opponents of same-sex marriage have conceded the survey is likely to return a “yes” vote.

Fairfax Tasmania will bring you live coverage of the result, the reactions and what happens next.
