Postal Plebiscite: “What’s ‘The Post’?” Young People Ask

The Federal Government has announced plans to spend $122 million on a same-sex marriage postal plebiscite, with at least $115 million of those funds to be used for an awareness campaign explaining what an envelope is.

Malcolm Turnbull said the postal vote scheme – slated for November – was part of his government’s ‘Ideas Boom’ innovation agenda.

“There’s nothing more agile than putting a piece of paper inside another piece of paper, dropping it in a box and then waiting a few days for it to arrive somewhere else,” he said.

The awareness campaign will be rolled out across daily metropolitan newspapers.
