Is the marriage equality postal vote illegal?
In two weeks' time, the High Court of Australia will decide whether the Federal Government's postal plebiscite on #MarriageEquality is allowed to go ahead.
So, what's this High Court challenge all about?
Professor Sarah Joseph from the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law walks you through it and how likely it is to get up.
[NOTE: This afternoon, Acting Special Minister of State Mathias Cormann issued a statement that, according to the Australian Electoral Commission, 16 and 17 year olds will not be able to take part in the postal vote. We have not got confirmation whether this is accurate.]

Professor Paula Gerber, deputy director of the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law at Monash University in Melbourne, said she did not know of another country that had sought such an advisory vote.
Ireland, for example, became the first country to legalise same-sex marriage by popular vote in 2015, but that referendum was conducted in person and legally binding.
The vote in Australia will be neither. Professor Gerber said she believed it showed how “out of step” the government was with the wishes of the Australian people, “because the public overwhelmingly in opinion polls support marriage equality.”
