One In Three Australian LGBT Voter Undecided About Which Party They Will Vote For: Survey
One in three LGBTQI Australian voter said that they are undecided about who they will vote for or are considering changing their vote at the forthcoming federal elections scheduled to be held on May 21, 2022. The results of one of the largest national online surveys of LGBTQI voters conducted by advocacy group Equality Australia was released on Monday, just as major political parties started their six-week campaign before the federal elections. One in five LGBTQI voter, who had voted Liberal, National, Labor or Greens at the 2019 elections, said they were reconsidering their vote this time. A post shared by Equality Australia (@equalityaustralia)Equality Australia estimates that there are around 850,000 LGBTQI voters who are eligible to vote at the elections in May. Around 7,902 people, including 5,578 LGBQI people currently living in Australia, responded to the LGBTIQ+ Federal Election survey conducted in February and March 2022. The elections are being held months after a failed bid by Prime Minister Scott Morrison to get an anti-LGBTQI Religious Discrimination Bill passed in Parliament.
