Miriam Margolyes with Julia Gillard

Hello there fellow equality supporter! My name is Miriam Margolyes... also known as Professor Sprout from Harry Potter. Or Aunt Prudence from Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. Or fly the sheepdog from Babe.

What you may not know is that my partner of almost 50 years is Australian. I was thrilled to join her as an Aussie citizen in 2013 — I've always relished your humour and your sense of fairness.

As an Australian citizen who is currently overseas, I still made sure to vote. And I was incredibly proud to vote YES!

Did you know there are about  1 million Australians living in overseas right now? They are absolutely crucial to the YES movement. Together we need to make sure each and every YES supporter casts their vote — being briefly away from home or on holiday is no excuse!

If you have a friend or family member on holiday or living overseas make sure you remind them to vote YES. You can remind your friends by tagging them in our Facebook post here. (Or, why not give them a call — what a lovely surprise!)

Making sure we get every YES supporter to vote — especially those overseas — is how we are going to achieve a YES result and make marriage equality a reality in Australia.

I think life is sweeter shared. I was lucky to find the perfect person for my life. That's why this vote is so important — it is time for the Aussie sense of fairness to ring loud and true!

Please join me in voting YES and in reminding all those overseas to submit their survey.

Thank you for your support,
