Share the campaign in over 45 languages

Our goal is to ensure that all Australians can vote in the upcoming Referendum. With the help of Polaron, we have translated a short video, social media tiles and information factsheets into over 45 languages so you can spread the message with everyone.

Understanding the Referendum

We have put together the most commonly asked questions and answers about establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.

What is the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice?

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice is a way for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to advise the Government about laws and policies that affect them.

What is a Referendum?

A Referendum is when voters are asked to answer Yes or No to a question or questions. The only way to change Australia's Constitution is via a Referendum.

Who can vote in a Referendum?

Only people enrolled to vote can take part in a Referendum. Voting in Referendums is compulsory for enrolled voters.

How do I vote in the Referendum?

Referendums are like elections. On polling day, you can go to a polling place and cast your vote on a ballot paper.

What question will the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice Referendum ask?

“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?” You will need to write ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.
