Voice to parliament referendum Yes and No pamphlets published today
By 9News Staff Jul 18, 2023
Pamphlets released today laying out the Yes and No cases for the Voice to parliament will pit an argument for recognition, listening and better results against concerns the change is legally risky, divisive and has unknown consequences.
The long-awaited publication of each side’s official arguments ahead of the referendum gives Australians the clearest understanding yet of what they’ll be voting on later this year.
Both arguments will be published online today by the Australian Electoral Commission before beginning to land in letterboxes across the country.
The Yes case argues the Voice is about recognition, listening and better results for Indigenous Australians.
“It’s a change only you can make happen,” the pamphlet will tell voters.
But the No side says the proposal is legally risky, divisive and has unknown consequences.
