16 days to go. The early voting booths are open – click here for a list of Rangitīkei early voting places. We’re busy with a cycle of candidates’ forums and street corner meetings and getting leaflets out, doing our best to connect with voters all through this huge electorate.
For my latest campaign newsletter, with details of everything that’s happening, click here: Rangitīkei campaign update – 2 September (pdf).
Upcoming candidates’ forums:
- Thursday 4 September, Bunnythorpe, in the Methodist Church Hall on Baring St, at 7.30pm
- Sunday 7 September, All Saints Community Centre in Palmerston North, at 1.30pm
- Tuesday 9 September, Shannon, in the Old Folks Hall, at 7pm
- Friday 12 September, Mangaweka, at 6pm, venue to be confirmed
I love the way that the forums in Bunnythorpe, Shannon and Mangaweka have come about. In each case, an individual person who is deeply involved in their community, and deeply committed to democracy, has stepped up to organise a forum. This is grass roots democracy, and it’s great to see it happening.
