TOOLKIT LAUNCHED TO HELP REFERENDUM VOTERS


Voters will have help to decide how they want to cast their votes in this year’s Referendum thanks to an online toolkit available from the Electoral Commission. In the latest addition to its public education programme, the easy-


to-use Toolkit is designed to help voters decide for themselves which voting system they prefer. It includes animated videos, quizzes and interactive content to deliver two ‘user journeys’ – the first enabling voters to learn about the five electoral systems and compare their functional characteristics and the second helping voters to assess each system, according to their own preferences and priorities. Chief Electoral Officer Robert Peden says the Toolkit is designed


to deliver Referendum information in an uncomplicated, unbiased and accessible format to suit different learning styles and information needs. “For the average voter, having the confidence to take part in the Referendum means making sense of some fairly complex information, much of which will be entirely new to people,” says Mr Peden. “Three of the five voting systems have never been used in parliamentary elections in New Zealand so it’s impossible to state precisely what could happen in New Zealand should either a new voting system or a revised version of MMP be adopted and implemented. “That’s why the Toolkit is designed as a guide only, albeit one we think


will give voters more confidence to have their say in the Referendum.” The Referendum Toolkit is available through www.elections.org.nz or


www.referendum.org.nz and at www.youtube.com/ReferendumNZ. CUNLIFFE David MP for New Lynn
