The time has come to cast your vote on the Referendum.
The Australian Constitution is a document that outlines the fundamental principles for the system of government in Australia. The only way to change the Constitution is by holding a referendum. This means the Constitution cannot be altered without ‘the approval of the people’.
On Saturday, 14 October 2023, Australians will vote on a single question to change the Constitution. The question will be about adding words into the Constitution about an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
The question you will vote on is:
A Proposed Law: to alter the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice. Do you approve this proposed alteration?
The proposed amendment and question were based on advice from the First Nations Referendum Working Group.
Where to vote:
Mornington Island PCYC
8am – 6pm
