Who to vote for this election
I have a few minor quibbles with some of his choices—and many of his choices will surely surprise you as much as they did me—but if you want to know who to vote for and who to ignore in your electorate this Saturday, then Liberty Scott's patented New Zealand election 2011 electorate by electorate voting guide is essential reading.
And no, it’s hardly part-led or partisan, as this party breakdown proves:
26 ACT candidates
11 from Labour
9 from National
8 Libertarianz candidates
8 from Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party
2 Independent candidates, and
1 from the Maori Party
In addition, there are 4 Abstentions where all the alternatives are just too disgusting to contemplate. Which is currently my position in my own electorate of Epsom.
PS: I’ll give you my own,shorter voting guide later in the week. Who to vote for, and who to vote against. And who to be so disgusted by that any action against, anything at all, should be contemplated.
