This is the first of a six-episode series to help voters ahead of New Zealand’s General Election on 20 September 2014. The series has been prepared by The Salvation Army's Social Policy for Parliamentary Unit.
These videos won’t tell anyone how to vote, but they will raise some key issues that are important to New Zealand: housing, our children, social hazards, crime and punishment, and work and incomes. We hope this series encourages people to be active citizens who take their opportunity to vote seriously. See you at the polls!
