This is checking in with you all about election matters because, like, it’s really important for eligible people to vote. There’s a whole lot of ethics in there around civic duty, but also - if you’re in a demographic that doesn’t turn out, politicians will not prioritise your concerns. And you are an important member of this country: you count, so make sure the Beehive knows it.
If you haven’t received a letter from the Electoral Commission yet, they don’t have you on the electoral roll, or you’ve moved. But that’s OK, because you can sign up right here: http://www.elections.org.nz/voters/enrol-check-or-update-now
Registration for this pervasive larp is really streamlined, it will take you about three minutes. If you have a RealMe id, you won’t even need to print, sign, or post anything (but you can if that’s easier.)
Game start is Saturday, 23 September. There’ll be game locations all over your home town: http://www.elections.org.nz/voters/voting-election You can even get involved in a Play By Post Pre Game: http://www.elections.org.nz/events/2017-general-election/voting-2017-general-election/cant-get-voting-place
Again, this is really streamlined, your main job is thinking about who you’d like to see make decisions on your behalf.
Seriously, this is a really exciting election, and governments can turn on just a few seats (and votes), so please get out there on the day.
