We take a closer look at the historic WIN.

In case you missed it – although, it’s pretty bloody unlikely you have, considering the rainbow-coloured explosion of JOY that’s taken over the country – the results of the same-sex marriage survey have come back and the result is YES, beauties! 

While we know that 7,817,247 (61.6 per cent of you) fabulous Aussies said yes to love nationally, we figured you may be curious to see how your state or electoral division voted in the survey. Lucky for you, the good folk at Australian Bureau of Statistics have broken down all the data and shared it with you on their website.
