Peo­ple are mak­ing their last minute cal­cu­la­tions and de­ci­sions on who to vote for at this year’s gen­eral elec­tion. With just a few days left un­til polling day, it’s im­por­tant to be armed with as much in­for­ma­tion on the can­di­dates and their party poli­cies as pos­si­ble so you can make an in­formed de­ci­sion. The can­di­dates we spoke to for the Taupo and Waikato elec­torates tell us it’s been a chal­leng­ing but re­ward­ing cam­paign trail. Vot­ers will be look­ing to see if any­one has come for­ward to chal­lenge in­cum­bent Na­tional MP Louise Up­ston or whether in fact any­one can name the other three can­di­dates in that elec­torate’s race? In the Waikato elec­torate, MP Lind­say Tisch is step­ping down and vot­ers there will elect a new face to rep­re­sent them. Tim van de Molen is Na­tional’s can­di­date with Labour putting up lawyer Brooke Loader, Tama­here woman and for­mer ed­i­tor Philippa Steven­son is cam­paign­ing for the Green Party and re­gional coun­cil­lors Stu Hus­band for New Zealand First. Vote wisely, but do vote.
