Media Release 16 July 2020
Hot off the press is our brand new resource Value Your Vote 2020. This is the fifth election where we have provided this popular voting resource for families.
The 2020 election is unique in that we not only have two votes under the MMP system, the party vote and the electorate vote, we also get another two votes: on whether euthanasia and cannabis should be legalised in New Zealand.
Your votes will literally change lives.
This brochure (and the accompanying guide on our website – ValueYourVote.nz) does two things:
1. It allows you to see how each MP, including each party leader, has voted on important social issues. Many of them are conscience votes, allowing an MP to vote according to his or her conscience rather than along party lines. However, in many cases, there seems to be a ‘party conscience’.
2. It explains the reasons why a NO-vote in both the referendum on cannabis and the referendum on euthanasia is the only option.
There is also a summary of why the new abortion law should never have been passed.
Watch the short promo below….
The resource is also available to be viewed and downloaded in Maori, Samoan, Tongan, Arabic, Korean and Chinese.
VOTING ACCORDING TO OUR VALUES IS THE GREATEST FREEDOM AND PRIVILEGE WE HAVE. WE SHOULD VALUE IT – AND USE IT!
We are pleased to aid you in making an informed decision when you vote this September.
