I thank Senator Green for her second supplementary question. The Albanese government has taken action to improve enrolment of all Australians, and I'm pleased to say that young Australians aged between 18 and 24 are now enrolled at record levels. Members of this cohort of young Australians are eager to have their say in the first referendum in their lifetime, and I'm confident that young Australians are ready to get behind the Voice to Parliament. In the words of Uluru Youth Dialogue Co-Chair Allira Davis:

… more than 73 per cent of young Australians support the Voice. We know young people want to make sure this happens and see a successful referendum.

I encourage all Australians to enrol to vote and get behind the Voice.
