Its the economy stupid

Its the economy stupid

A poll being conducted on the Massey Birdwood Settlers website asks the question - Its Election Year - what will you base your vote on?


Of the respondents to date 80% would base their vote on the economy and 20% on issues like health and education.


The Massey Birdwood Settlers Association is a resident and ratepayer group, formed in 1925 and covers Massey West and East and Massey North in Auckland.


The resident and ratepayer groups boundaries are predominately covered by the new Upper Harbour electorate although parts of the ratepayer groups boundary will also cover Te Atatu electorate.


Those wishing to take part in the online poll can do so by visiting http:// asseybirdwoodsettlers.org. The poll will remain open until the end of the month.

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>>
