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".
Do you think online voting would help eliminate the risk of election fraud?

Hi neighbours, kōkako nests in the Waitākere Ranges have been hit hard by rats after rodent populations in the area nearly doubled, meaning all of the kōkako chicks and eggs in three nests inside Forest & Bird's Ark in the Park have been destroyed by predators. Waitākere Forest & Bird branch chairperson Annalily van den Broeke said those living in the area could help save the birds by putting out traps on their property.
Would you be willing to set traps to help give these birds a fighting chance?
