12:44 pm: Reminder: It's Election Day in New Zealand.
Please go & vote if you can.


New Zealand has laws that haven't quite caught up to 2017. By law, all electioneering materials have to be taken down by midnight before election day. Yesterday saw hordes of volunteers taking down election billboards, hoardings & other advertisements.

Today, no campaigning is allowed. So while I can exhort you to go vote, I cannot encourage you to vote for a particular party. Anything I posted up to midnight last night is ok but nothing today.

That said, there's nothing to stop a non-New Zealand voter from retweeting a tweet so it shows up on my current timeline. And I don't know what the law says about liking someone's tweet or Facebook post.

I've disabled LJ comments. Please come comment at DW:
