We asked the more than 8600 people who took part in our latest Voice referendum survey why they were voting "yes", "no" or were undecided.
Here are some of the responses from "yes" voters.
I will vote 'yes'
Male 18-39: Voting "yes" is for me a no-brainer and it should be the same for many. It's time for governments to listen to Indigenous people's advice on issues that are affecting their communities because it's clear that past policies forced onto them have not addressed the issues.
Male 60-75: I also think it will be a unifying thing for Australia and will set us on a path to making this a truly inclusive nation.
Female 60-75: I am disheartened that so much fear and disinformation has seemingly successfully been peddled on a question which should unite rather than divide us and finally set the record straight and truthfully about our history as a nation. Respect, fairness and dignity have been deliberately muddied and sullied in the most dishonourable of ways. I fear for the consequences.
Male 60-75: After more than 200 years, this is what they have graciously asked of us. This is the least we can do to right some of the wrongs.
Female 75+: I voted "yes" in 1967 and I will vote "yes" in 2023. It is the only moral choice. If you don't know, find out. That's the responsible approach.
Female 40-59: I am surprised about the reluctance of people to vote yes - especially the argument that a "yes" result will divide the country.
Male 18-39: Missing in the reasons to vote "yes" are that this advisory body will need to exist (can't be repealed) and that the proposal was the form of constitutional recognition First Nations asked for.
Female 75+: For goodness sake let's just do this! It's time!
Female 60-75: My reason for voting yes is that it will finally start to right the wrong that was terra nullius. The constitution continued to perpetuate that lie.
Female 40-59: This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to give responsibility to First Nations peoples to advise government on matters that affect them; to be recognised in the constitution, to give everyone in those country a chance to stand together and be proud of our step toward a better future.
Female 60-75: The Voice I will hope put the Indigenous and Non-Indigenous on a level playing field, same rights. We both have a lot to learn from each other. It may help ease the current fighting and bickering in our current governments. Bring back compassion and common sense.
Male 40-59: The government should have outlined the actual processes better a lot of it is just warm and fuzzy without detail - but I trust the process enough and there are good people backing the "yes" vote. I don't want rednecks to put their foot on the throat of the vote.
Female 18-39: Non-Indigenous are being asked a very modest and reasonable request by the 3 per cent of this country who are Indigenous. I feel very strongly we need to answer this request with "YES".
Female 75+: It's time the First Nations people had a formal influence on the government policies that affect them directly.
Male 60-75: I think Australia needs to recognise Australia's First Nations people in the constitution. Years of paternalistic solutions and money have gone nowhere. The Voice is a promise for the future. The Uluru Statement is a generous statement formulated by extensive regional discussion. Australia is very backward in recognising its First Nation inhabitants.
Female 75+: I was surprised at my own ignorance when the referendum was first proposed by Prime Minister Albanese and have spent time reading and catching up on massive omissions and distortions in my education on the subject of our First Nations peoples.
Male 60-75: I live in regional Queensland where there is a considerable Aboriginal and Torres Strait population and I see that little has been done to improve their lives. I would like to give them the opportunity to Voice their own solutions to this inequality.
Female 60-75: I have an ancestor who was involved in the Appin Massacre receiving 5 pounds because he directed soldiers to the Aboriginal camp; as a descendant of that person I feel it is important to support Indigenous people in any way I can so that they can have the same life expectancy that I have.
Female 18-39: The government pamphlet does not contain practical information. I was confused by it, so I looked up the history (inquiry report, amendments made and why) and then read info from constitutional law experts and made up my mind that this is needed beyond the existing agencies and funding which are failing to close the gap. The "yes" argument in the pamphlet was fluffy jargon. The "no" argument in the pamphlet contains concerns that have since been addressed months earlier, which I believe is disingenuous. I'm worried the pamphlet will fail to inform voters and no one will research on their own.
Male 40-59: Simply a choice between hope, love and compassion vs fear, hatred and selfish greed.
