Do you know if your local candidates will fight to preserve the definition of marriage?

Marriage has been made a key issue this election.

Man-woman marriage provides a natural, timeless and sustainable foundation for children and society.  It is worth fighting for.

We’ve asked the candidates in your area if they would use their vote in parliament to support marriage. And here are the results.

  • John Leslie BURSILL, Katter’s Australian Party, Position unknown, 0414 878 499
  • John FLANAGAN, Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting), Position unknown, 0415 899 574
  • Philip CLIFFORD, Liberal, Position unknown, 0419 879 352
  • Christopher James ATLEE, Palmer United Party, Opposes change, 0466 631 545
  • Rob GEORGE, Christian Democratic Party (Fred Nile Group), Opposes change
  • Helen WILSON, The Greens, Supports change
  • Sharon Bird, ALP, Supports change

Disappointingly, some candidates declined to say how they’d vote on this important issue. We have included the phone numbers of candidates who have provided them to the Electoral Commission.

You might want to give them a call and find out where they stand.

I hope you find this information useful.

P.S. Of course, marriage isn’t the only important issue in this campaign. If you’d like to know more about each party’s position on other issues, check out our election website or iPhone app.

P.P.S. There’s still time for your church to register for the Make it Count 2013 Election Panel webcast this Monday night. This will be an important opportunity for Christians to hear directly from PM Rudd and Mr Abbott ahead of next week’s election.  Don’t miss out!

In the past, you’ve told us you live at an address in the electorate of Cunningham. If you believe this is wrong or would like to update your contact details, please email natoffice@acl.org.au.
