Local body vote papers left on doorstep below sealed letter box

Caroline Williams Reporter from Stuff

A stack of six envelopes containing voting papers for the local body elections were spotted at the doorstep of a derelict building on a busy central Auckland footpath on Thursday, despite the letter box being taped shut. NZ Post admitted the delivery person had left the voting papers on the footpath, but said it took the responsibility of delivering voting papers "very seriously".

Research wanted

Jennifer from Devonport

There’s not one thing
That hasn’t already been done
Not one game
That hasn’t been played
Not one look
Hasn’t been given
Or felt
Not one stare
Given hard,
By a weak, wrong
Opponent
Disaster strikes
So too,
Does a culture
Of competition, first
Among the weak
By those
First
Whose only chance to be first
Is to destroy
Instead of collaborate
Beware a few
Against
Single
Anything
Or one
Ask why?
