What are the steps to become a Republic?

  • 2015: Republic supporters came together from across Australia to join the movement.
  • 2016-2017: Volunteers build a grassroots campaign to spread the message to as many people as possible (get involved today); 
  • 2018: With so many Aussies talking about it, the movement becomes impossible to ignore and the republic becomes a national issue;
  • 2019: Our leaders consult the Australian people about becoming a republic, and the best proposals are added to a short-list for the public to vote on;
  • 2020: A national vote (plebiscite) is held on the questions:
  1. ‘Should Australia have an Australian head of state?’
  2. 'How should we choose our head of state?’
  • Now that most Aussies think Australia should be a republic and we know how they want to choose their head of state, a final YES/NO vote (referendum) will be held to give Australians the final say over whether the constitution gets updated, or keeps a foreign Queen/King reigning over us.
