With the government deciding that with no community cases of Cv-19 south of the Big Smoke for over 3 months, people are now safe to go about their normal activities, there should also be unrestricted “meet the candidates” as well as hui on issues (such as the pending Paraparaumu airport closure) events.

For those who aren’t excited by such, but are still interested in knowing more than what the Mainstream Media are going to tell you — and when the moderators of the TV1 and TV3 leaders’ debates are John Campbell and Patrick Gower respectively, you can’t help but sigh — there is Policy  :–

This makes voting easy: all the policies, parties and candidates, all in one place

→ See where the parties stand on key issues
→ Learn more about the candidates running in your area: 
→ Save the policies you like most, and view policies without party labels to browse free from bias
→ Share policies and candidates with friends and family 

“We’ve summarised 900+ policies from 550+ documents and speeches, and surveyed 500+ candidates across every electorate. We’ve also launched resources for teachers and schools and a policy idea competition for students.

“Please consider sharing Policy with your friends and family: research from the Electoral Commission shows that one in three non-voters cite ‘not knowing who to vote for’ as their main reason for not voting.

“You can also follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter to stay up to date.

Ngā mihi,

Chris, on behalf of the Policy team”
