An overwhelming 63.1 per cent of Indi and 55.2 per cent of Farrer residents believe same-sex couples should be allowed to marry.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics results showed Indi was ahead of the national and Victorian averages and Farrer just below the NSW average – an 8 per cent difference between the neighbouring electorates.

A large number of 82.1 per cent of eligible Indi residents returned their forms, led by 90.4 per cent of 70 to 74-year-olds.

The lowest age demographic of voters was not the teenagers as expected – 80.7 of 18 and 19 year-olds managed to post their forms, compared to just 71.3 of 25 to 29-year-olds.

It was a similar story in Farrer.

Even with an overall lower number of 77.4 per cent who returned their forms, 89.3 per cent of 75 to 79-year-olds in the electorate voted.

Farrer teenagers were also much more likely – 73.5 per cent – to vote than the 20 to 24-year-old demographic with just 64.4 per cent.
