Today is the day that we as a nation come together to decide who will lead our country for the next three years. One way or another the outcome of todays election will have a great impact on your life. The sad fact is though, that many people will not use their opportunity to have a voice, and will not vote.

Many people feel apathetic about voting for a variety of reasons. Perhaps they believe that their vote will not count, or that their opinions are not correctly represented by any political party. At the moment there is even a growing movement of those who withhold their vote in protest of what they see as a corrupt and unjust political system. This trend is largely influenced by overseas movements that are mostly relating to a political system different to the one here in New Zealand.

The truth is, that here in New Zealand right now your vote does count, and thanks to a system like MMP, even minor parties can gain seats in parliament and influence what happens in our government. You can be represented.

We don’t believe that our political system is perfect and we don’t see the level of change that we would like to see occur represented by any political parties in New Zealand right now, but we do see some parties as having the ability to bring the country into closer alignment to our views than others and that is why the team here at Wake have all voted and added our voices to the election process.

Today you have the opportunity to do the same. The truth is that the very face of the government may change if you make the decision to get out of bed and walk into an election booth today. Regardless of which party you support it is your duty as a free citizen to lend your voice to the fight. It is only when we lay down our rights and remain sleeping that democracy is truly lost.
