SSM postal survey form
The ABC tested the torch light theory and found it worked.1)see abc.net.au
Some Australians have expressed their concerns about the privacy of the same-sex marriage postal survey, after photos shared widely on social media appeared to expose a trick that could reveal the responses inside sealed envelopes.
A photo that was initially shared on Facebook showed how shining a torch light over the reply-paid envelope included with the survey could reveal the marked Yes or No box on the form inside.
“So we have wasted $122 million on a survey where a torch can reveal the answer through the reply envelope it came with,” the user wrote.
“So any postal worker with a vendetta against the opposing side can go through and remove votes as they see fit. (Or workmate if you post from work). Bravo government.”
The ABC conducted a test and found the torch light did indeed reveal a clear mark in the Yes or No box. (see Above)
“This absolutely does not feel like an OK thing for the Government to not have ensured.”
