With the delivery of the referendum booklet to all Australian households now finalising, the Australian Electoral Commission is reminding members of Australia's multicultural communities that translated versions are available on the AEC website. 

The booklet contains the official Yes and No cases written by parliamentarians, as well as a four-page AEC guide to participation in the referendum. 

Copies of the booklet in 34 languages are on the AEC's website. Translations of the booklet in First Nations languages are also progressively being made available on the website. Versions in alternative formats for people who are blind or have low vision are also on the website, or available by calling 13 23 26.

Information about the referendum process is also available in 34 languages - this includes fact sheets on the referendum, how to correctly complete the ballot paper and reminders about the potential for disinformation.

The AEC is running in-language advertising across a range of traditional and digital formats and conducting community information sessions to raise awareness of the referendum process.
