AUSSIE actress Margot Robbie has thrown her support behind the ‘yes’ vote for the postal plebiscite on same-sex marriage.

The star of The Wolf of Wall Street and Suicide Squad has taken to Instagram in a public show of support for gay marriage.

Queensland-born Robbie, 27, tweeted a pic of herself in pink and orange shaded sunglasses blowing a kiss with a link to the Australian Electoral Commission’s register to vote page with the hashtag ‘marriage equality’ and the quote “Love is love”.

The post received over 300,000 likes in the first hour from Robbie’s 12.3 million followers.

Australians have 10 days to make sure they will be able to vote in the postal plebiscite on same-sex marriage.

The cut-off for registering on the electoral roll will be August 24.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics will be supplied with details from the Australian Electoral Commission when it sends out its ballots for the postal vote next month, so to make your voice count you’ll need to make sure you are registered and that your details are up to date.
Acting Special Minister of State Mathias Cormann told ABC radio the government wanted to give people as much time as possible to register, but ultimately it was up to the ABS to decide the cut-off.

“This is now going to be a matter for the ABS to determine,” he said.
Ahead of a federal election, which are run by the AEC, voters usually have seven days to register after the vote is officially called.

But seeing as this is not an election but a voluntary, non-binding postal plebiscite run by a completely different agency, the usual rules go out the window.

I am still setting things up.

More will be added soon.
