The Great New Zealand Vote Party

Every election, we worry about young people not voting. This election, the youth wings of the major parties, the students associations, various TV and radio stations, and the Electoral Commission have got together to do something about it. Their idea: a Great New Zealand Vote Party.

  • Have your own party during voting hours: 9am – 7pm.
  • Take your mates to polling booth. They’re everywhere!
  • Organise a...
    • BBQ
    • Street Party
    • Pool party
    • Community ‘Vote’ Festival
  • Register your party here and be in to win DJ Mikey Havoc at your Election Day party
Celebrating election day is a good idea (I do it every election, typically with chocolate fondue) - but I'm not sure that Havoc is really an incentive.

(Oh, and no,this isn't treating - the "reward" (if you can call it that) is for holding a party, not necessarily for voting)
