About 30,000 Yes campaigners will begin their six-week campaign this week across the country, participating in more than 700 activities.

Yes23 Campaign Director Dean Parkin said it would be a “massive week” for engaging with Australians who are not certain they’d be voting Yes.

“Our volunteers will be everywhere, and I encourage Australians to have a conversation and learn more about the importance of voting Yes on 14 October,” Mr Parkin said.

“We are rolling out the biggest campaign this country has ever seen.

“We want to make sure that every voter has the opportunity to have a conversation about why voting Yes will bring about positive change for this nation.”
