Curran confirmed as Dunedin South Labour candidate

Dunedin South Labour MP Clare Curran was today confirmed as the Labour candidate for Dunedin South.

At a meeting attended by 50 party members and volunteers Clare pledged her commitment to Labour values:

“A decent home, a decent job, opportunities for our kids. No-one being left to fall through the cracks. A place where we can hold our heads high in the world. Where we look after our environment because we must,” she said.

Clare Curran said the campaign would focus on winning back the party vote in Dunedin South, and make a strong contribution for a Labour win on 20 September.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
