Update, 17th August 2020.
The information about election dates below is no longer accurate.
Now that the election has been delayed until 17th October, with advance voting from 3rd October, we will postpone our Candidates Meeting until late September. There will be a new post when a new date has been decided.
Wednesday 26th August, 7.00 pm at St Anne’s Hall at the end of Emmett St.
The General Election is in September – advance voting starts on Saturday 5th September, and Election Day is Saturday 19th September. You will be able to vote in 2 referenda (End of Life Choice and Cannabis Legalisation and Control), to cast a vote for the political party you prefer, and to vote for the candidate you want to represent our local electorate for the next three years.
See here to see the candidates standing to be the Electorate MPs. In the Rongotai Electorate there are already candidates from 7 political parties, with more to come: nominations don’t close until Friday 21st August. Come to our meeting to hear each of them explain why they want to be the MP for Rongotai!
The meeting will be chaired jointly by Yadana Saw and Patrick Morgan. The formal discussion will be followed by supper and the chance for informal mingling.
