Australia high court rules same-sex marriage vote to proceed

A vote on legalising same-sex marriage in Australia will proceed after a court dismissed two legal challenges.

The non-binding survey to gauge support for changing Australia’s marriage act is due to begin next week.

The high court of Australia had this week dismissed separate objections by same-sex marriage advocates, who had argued the postal vote was invalid.

The survey does not have the power to make same-sex marriage legal, but it could lead to a vote in parliament.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the law could change this year if the vote shows majority support.
