FROM THE EDITOR
Well, the election is finally upon us and what an event it is proving to be.
Two evenly matched large parties, several contenders in the small party arena and a massive battle in the Ma¯ ori seats including right here in the Te Tai Hauauru electorate.
Everyone has their method of voting - the things that are important to them, whether it be trust in the people leading us or the policies that they stand for.
Either way, you need to get out and have our say, if you haven’t already.
We have a bit more from the general electorate candidates on page 23 so make sure you check that out if you are still wavering.
There is plenty more coverage on Stuff.co.nz for those who need a quick guide or those who want a more in depth political meal.
Make sure you check out all the other stories we have in today’s edition, including the Easter trading deliberations on page 1.
