Just a quick post to remind people that they still have to the end of the week to vote in their local body elections.
If your first question is "what local body election?" then shame on you, go see if you can still enroll and get voting.
If your first question is "who the hell do I vote for?" then welcome to my world.
None the less I will be voting and have been taking the time to figure out what the candidates actually stand for apart form their 100 word blurbs in the candidates guide.
Democracy does not start at the national level but at the local and with low voter turnout this is your chance to have your say or even run for office (given that in Christchurch some candidates are running unopposed).
Anyway good luck and have fun!
