Nearly one quarter million eligible-to-vote New Zealanders do not even know there is an election this year.
National Manager Murray Wicks says they are alarmed at the number of people who do not know an election is only months away.
He says over half of Pacific Islanders and young people, and just under half of Maori and Asian people do not have a clue.
Almost 240,000 people still are not enrolled to vote.
I find it hard to get excited about this bunch. When I was a teenager I was one of them. The only reason I voted was because my mother badgered me into it. My vote would have cancelled out one from somebody who had invested heaps of energy and thought into which party to choose. Leave them alone, I say.
I mean, isn't this just another example of wiping people's bottoms for them? The Electoral Commission will spend a fortune in sending out forms to every enrolled voter and the bulk will be binned. Absolute waste. Let people take some responsibility for organising and educating themselves. Voting is a right but it is also a privilege. Allow people to value it as such.
Where is your Goddess now?
