There has already been a lot of misinformation about the Voice, what it is and what its’ impact will be. We respect the rights of all Australians to develop their own views on the Voice, but want to point out misinformation wherever it appears, regardless of whether it is from Voice advocates or opponents, so there is a clearer picture for Australian voters. If you see additional incorrect information published in relation to the Voice referendum, please contact us at info@vfr23.com.au so that we can correct the facts here.

The Voice will report to Parliament, but it won’t pass legislation, control policy or control Government spending. It is an advisory body to the Federal Parliament. It does not change the composition of the Parliament or how the Parliament is elected.

All Australians can make representation to their local MP. Constitutional experts have determined that the Voice will not give Indigenous people rights that are superior or different to those of other Australians.

Successive governments have recognised the importance of increased local control of solutions to improve the effectiveness of government policy.
