Around the country, Australians are opening up their letterboxes to the crisp, white envelopes of the Australian Marriage Law postal survey.
And after spending $122 million dollars on getting this operation as right as it can be, the internet has pointed out a number of features the Government has gotten seriously wrong. Aside from the obvious.
A Facebook user highlighted the fact that the envelope in which we’ll be entrusting our votes actually fails at its one and only job – to keep our vote safe.
“So we have wasted $122 million on a survey where a torch can reveal the answer through the reply envelope it came with,” they wrote alongside an image of the letter exposed with torchlight.
The ABC has confirmed votes can be seen through their envelopes when shone with a torch, cementing the public’s concerns over vote tampering.
