Send the polling to candidates vying for your vote

If there’s one thing that MPs and candidates are motivated by — it’s polling figures.

And new polling commissioned by Fair Agenda members shows that 80% of undecided voters say their candidates’ stance on decriminalising abortion would influence how they vote.

Can you take a moment to get this polling in front of the people who need to see it most — the candidates vying for your vote?

Queenslanders go to the poll this Saturday, which means we have just 4 days to get candidates to go on the record about where they stand on this vote-changing issue.

It will only take 5 minutes All you need to do is enter your postcode and then select candidates who have not responded to Fair Agenda's pledge question. Your message will be more effective if you take a bit of time to personalise it. 

Send the polling to your MP and candidates, let them know where you stand on decriminalising abortion, and then urge them to take Fair Agenda’s pro-choice pledge.

Here is the summary of key polling results to include:

ReachTEL conducted a survey of 1,255 residences across Queensland on the evening of the 16th November. The polling was commissioned by Fair Agenda.

• Q: If your preferred local candidate in the upcoming Queensland election wanted accessing an abortion to remain a criminal offence, would you still vote for them? 50.1% of respondents said no. 57.1% of undecided said no.

• Q: If your local candidate for parliament refused to disclose whether they wanted abortion to remain a crime in Queensland, would you be more or less likely to vote for them? 52.6% of respondents said less likely. 46.4% of undecided said less likely.

• Q: How important is decriminalising abortion when deciding who you will vote for in this election? 67.2% of respondents said it was important, and 80.4% of undecided.
