After weeks of division, nastiness and bigotry , next Wednesday Australia will learn what the results will be from the marriage equality survey.
If the results are anything like the polls are predicting, the answer will be a resounding yes to love.
Today is the final day ballots can still be handed in and the latest Essential Vision poll shows that 89% of Australians have already voted.
Of those who have voted 64% have voted yes. When broken down along party lines, the results are: Labor 79% voted yes, the Coalition is at 54% with the Greens coming in at 92%.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has confirmed that she voted yes and said everyone had a right to “be with the person they love”.
It is expected that if the ballot is successful same sex marriage laws will be in place by Christmas.
