New Zealand’s First Internet Election

Auckland University of Technology (AuSM) students next week vote for their President in a ground-breaking election – New Zealand’s first over the internet.

Up to 15,000 students are eligible to vote in this first on-line election. The “ generation” already use the internet to bank, buy CD’s, listen to music and contact friends – and now, the global internet voting company, give them the ability to exercise their voting rights over the net.

You are invited to attend the launch event:

Auckland University of Technology
Akoranga Campus Quad (outside Library)
Time: 12pm
Date: Monday 16 October

Or check out the online voting around campus between 16-20 October. A mobile voting station (more commonly known as a laptop) will allow students to vote wherever it suits ….. in the quad, in the gym, in a café … or they can log on to the designated site on one of the university’s hundreds of PCs.

Please call Chris Major on (025) 443 220 for more details, to arrange interviews with candidates, students or organisers, or for photo op details.
