This year between 22 November and 13 December, New Zealanders get to vote in a Citizens Initiated Referendum.
We get to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on this question: “Do you support the Government selling up to 49% of Meridian Energy, Mighty River Power, Genesis Power, Solid Energy and Air New Zealand?”
Your voting paper will be sent to you in the mail, so you must be sure that you are enrolled and your address details are correct. You can only vote if you are enrolled before voting starts on 22 November.
Further information on the referendum in NZSL can be found on the Electoral Commission website.
