Suffrage Day walks
A walk along Trafalgar St in Nelson is planned for tomorrow to commemorate Suffrage Day and encourage people to vote in the general election. Nelson Pay Equity Partnership spokeswoman Pip Jamieson said people were invited to gather at the Church Steps at 11.50am. From there, the group intended to walk along Trafalgar St to an advance voting place on Bridge St. The event is called the Walk for Kate in reference to Kate Sheppard, who in 1893 led the campaign to achieve the vote for women.
