The first debate between Prime Minister Bill English and Labour leader Jacinda Ardern will take place this evening at 7 pm NZ time (5 pm in eastern Australia, 4.30 pm in SA and NT, and 3 pm in WA). TVNZ will be streaming the debate live via Facebook and their website.
If you haven’t decided who you will be voting for yet, this is a great opportunity to see what the leaders of the two major parties have to offer for New Zealand’s future.
Remember, if you are a New Zealand citizen living overseas, you can enrol and vote as long as you have visited NZ within the last three years. If you are a New Zealand permanent resident who has already met the residence requirement to enrol, you can vote as long as you have visited NZ within the last year.
