Australia votes to legalize same-sex marriage

AUSTRALIA – Australia has said “yes” to legalizing same-sex marriage after a controversial two-month long national postal survey.

Results released early on Wednesday morning revealed 61% of the population voted to allow same-sex marriage.

It is the beginning of the end for a long-running campaign to allow marriage equality in Australia, something already legal in the majority of English-speaking countries worldwide.

But even ahead of the release of the results, conservative politicians inside the Australian parliament were preparing for a fight over how marriage equality would be legalized.

This is a developing story.
