Vote 'NO' to asset sales

New Zealanders will get the chance to vote against asset sales by a postal ballot that will run between 22 November and 13 December 2013.

New Zealanders have been asked to vote on the question:

"Do you support the Government selling up to 49% of Meridian Energy, Mighty River Power, Genesis Power, Solid Energy and Air New Zealand?"

We need your help to win the referendum and make it crystal clear to John Key that he does not have a mandate to sell our assets. Read some reasons why you should vote NO.

You can do more than Vote NO

Call 5 friends and organise their voting plan

Tell your friends to look out for their ballot paper and help them organize their vote. Get them to commit to a time and day they will fill out their ballot, and when and where they will post it. For example, dropping it in the postbox on the way to the weekly supermarket shop, or during the school run.

Vote in a group

Get your flat, apartment floor, family or street together to vote. Since it's a postal vote, you can take everyone's sealed envelopes to the post box in one trip.
