If you haven’t heard the news, Australia is currently in the midst of a vote on quite an important issue — same-sex marriage. And in order to support his home country, Liam Hemsworth sounded off on same-sex marriage in a way that’ll make you cheer. Hemsworth took his words to Instagram, and likely encouraged a bunch of his fans to get out there and vote.

Hemsworth, who’s currently in a relationship with singer and actress Miley Cyrus, noted that he feels like having to vote on such an issue is a little silly, because marrying someone you love should be a human right. And we have to agree.

Australians will be voting by mail. The ballot they’ll receive will only include one question — “Do you support a change in the law to allow same-sex couples to marry?” From there, they can check off “yes” or “no.”

As of right now, same-sex marriage is not allowed in Australia, so this would be a huge deal if enough Australians say yes.

Surveys went out on September 12th, and they’re expected to be returned by October 27th. Afterward, we’ll learn how Australia as a country stands on the big issue.

As for Hemsworth, we’re so glad that he supports same-sex marriage. And we’re even happier that he’s reminding his home country how important each and every vote will be.
