Though the survey is non-binding and voluntary, if a “Yes” majority is reached Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has said that he would introduce pro-marriage equality legislation to Parliament. “Everybody has the right to love,” said Strahovski in the video, “and everyone has the right to choose who they love.” The recommended date for Australians to have their ballots mailed in by is October 27, but the hard deadline is November 7.

Watch, below, and make sure you’re on the side of history that chooses love.
