Kea New Zealand has set up a valuable site aimed at encouraging overseas Kiwis to enrol and vote in this year’s elections. According to them, one in every seven New Zealanders lives overseas, and last election out of a possible 500,000 only a paltry 28,000 bothered to vote.
All you do is:
- Tell anyone you know that is either a New Zealander overseas or knows someone who is. Get them to enrol to vote and spread the word.
- Send this link – www.everyvotecounts.co.nz -for them to find out if they are eligible to vote.
The cool thing about Every Vote Counts is that it’s a completely non-partisan and non-governmental campaign. It’s simply about encouraging all New Zealanders to vote.
