New Zealand 2008 General Election date announced

On Friday, 12 September 2008 the Prime Minister announced that the next New Zealand General Election will be held on Saturday, 8 November 2008 so it is time for New Zealanders to check that they are enrolled with Elections New Zealand.

Those Kiwis overseas might like to have a look at the web site Every Vote Counts, a non-partisan campaign to reach New Zealanders offshore and encourage them to participate.

Canada's next federal election will be on 14 October and the Presidential election in the United States is on 4 November so there is plenty going on to keep election watchers interested.
