Yes campaigners hit the streets to raise referendum awareness

Yes campaigners spread the Yes23 message on the streets of Port Stephens.

WITH the date of the Voice to Parliament referendum announced last Wednesday, Port Stephens For Yes campaigners took to the streets in numbers to raise awareness of the ‘Yes’ vote campaign.

Tens of thousands of people across the Hunter witnessed the act of support, with Port Stephens For Yes members joining Yes23 groups from across the region to brandish corflutes and Yes shirts at major thoroughfares.

“To celebrate the momentous occasion and to show the community that they were there in a big way, Port Stephens For Yes took part in a Wobble Board Wednesday,” a spokesperson from the Yes23 group told News Of The Area.
“Wobble Board Wednesday occurs simultaneously across Australia to help encourage conversations, visually display support for the Voice and most importantly, to encourage community members to vote Yes.

“With two groups in Raymond Terrace and Salamander Bay, the community support was seen in a big way, with numerous honks of support for the Voice,” the spokesperson said.

Port Stephens for Yes, Port Stephens’ official Yes23 group, is currently seeking volunteers to get the word out about their campaign.

Volunteers can get involved by handing out flyers at street stalls or train stations, distributing corflutes, letterboxing, or staffing pre-polling booths (when early voting starts) and polling booths (on referendum day).
