The Government elections are being held, at this stage, in September. The other referendum that we will have to vote on is the END OF LIFE CHOICE. This referendum will be binding, dependant upon the YES vote reaching 50% or more.
I am interested to get some idea of what people are thinking so here are some salient points to consider.
Don't depend on the polls, make your own choice.
To make sure what you are voting for here are 2 links that may be useful. referendum.govt.nz or eolc.org.nz/eolc-act
Don't be swayed by hearsay or others' opinions/bias, check for yourself how tightly limited and regulated the Act is in its final form.
The original Bill took many years going through select committee hearings then a full Govt. debate was passed by a cross-party majority when it became an Act. This is now embedded in law as an Act subject to the upcoming referendum. If a majority vote YES it will be binding on the new Govt.
This is an important issue although opinions are split, so it is timely to consider this referendum and familiarise yourself with the facts so you can make an informed vote.

NB. I am in no way associated with either side of this debate.
