Australian High Court rejects challenge to government’s same-sex marriage vote


Melbourne (Reuters) – Australia’s High Court rejected two legal challenges on Thursday against the center-right coalition government’s proposed postal vote on whether to legalize same-sex marriage.

Australians will now begin voting in the non-compulsory ballot as early next week, with a result expected to be known in November.
