It is not compulsory in New Zealand to vote at a General Election but I always feel that I can't sit here and complain about the state of things if I don't vote. So with the children in tow off I went.
Excitedly the children spotted the signs tells me where to go to vote.
Of course a technical hitch meant I had to make a special vote. Five minutes of paper work, naturally Hayden needed a toilet break at this time, and McKenzie asking me full volume what I was voting for in the referendum. 30 seconds later the voting done and I am out the door.
