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 Waikato, Hau­raki-Waikato elec­torates, tell us it’s been a chal­leng­ing but re­ward­ing cam­paign trail. In the Waikato elec­torate, 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 coun­cil­lor Stu Hus­band for New Zealand First. In the Maori seat of Hau­rak­iWaikato, Labour Party’s in­cum­bent MPNanaia Mahuta looks strong but what im­pact will Kingi Tuhetia’s sup­port for Maori Party can­di­date Rahui Papa have on vot­ers’ fi­nal de­ci­sion?
