New Lynn Electoral Office provides polling booth at festival
The New Lynn Electoratal Office and the Waitakere City Council have joined forces to incorporate a polling booth into the annual Moon Festival, held this weekend at the New Lynn Community Centre.
A joint venture between New Lynn Returning Officer Don Chapman and the Waitakere City Council, the polling booth will allow citizens in the New Lynn Electorate to vote on site at the festival.
The booth will take advantage of the 5000+ people expected to attend this year’s festival to make voting as convenient as possible for local New Lynn citizens.
Mr Chapman says the addition of the booth to the festival provides another outlet for voting on Election Day and is pleased with the proactive approach of the Council encouraging their citizens to vote.
The 2005 Moon Festival starts this Friday with a 6.30pm opening ceremony and performances through the evening with festivities starting again at 10am Saturday morning. All are welcome, entry is free and there is ample parking nearby. --
