Labour’s General Secretary Tim Barnett says:

All Party members who are eligible to vote should now have received voting papers in the mail, or if requested via email. If you are still to receive your voting paper, it is not too late to re-issue you with voting details by email. To help us manage the process, please:

  • Send an email to reception@labour.org.nz. We can process your request more efficiently through email than over the phone.
  • In your email include your name, day-time contact phone number, membership number if you have it and postal address. If you recently renewed your membership, it helps us to know whether you renewed online or by post.
  • In order for us to ensure that we can check your membership details, before authorising your voting paper to be re-issued, it would help us if you could get in touch by 3pm Friday afternoon.

The latest we can advise Electionz to re-issue ballots is 4pm Friday 13th September.

To all of you who have been in touch with us about the Leadership Election process, we appreciate the grace with which you have waited while we dealt with any concern you may have had, and your enthusiasm to participate in this democratic process.

Thank you for your support.

Nearly 4000 have been involved in hustings meetings, this has been a great chance for everyone to have their say – make sure you have yours!

  1. Congratulations to the Labour head office personnel and volunteers for having done a stellr job during this leadership election process. I am a returning prodigal son to the party with renewed hope, enthusiasm and loyalty. I would like to see Labour the party and its leader come up with exciting, just, sensible, essential and fair social, economic and environmental polices to help the country, all the people, but especially the less privileged. We need policies that put a break on uncontrolled, greedy so called ‘free’ market that continually widens the gap in wage, income and wealth between those at the top and those at the bottom. Such a society is not only unfair, it is uncivilised and should be an anathema for every one. The new leader should not be hung up on left or right or centre policies but encompass and use various sensible methods to make our country a great, independent and just place for everyone, the wealthy, the poor and those in the middle. I hope the new leader will not.disappoint

    last chance indeed. i think most of us here voted the second we got our grubby little mitts on our e-form passwords. Cunliffe was and still is the only choice for that number one spot; now all we have to do is wait for the count on sunday.

    while i should be assured seeing the masses haven’t changed their vote and be even more comforted hearing the unions favour David … i’m still worried about what the labour caucus could pull. it defies believe that they could be that stupid but they’ve done it in the past …

    [lprent: Your last chance as well. Have you read the policy yet? Or do I drop you back into auto-spam? ]

    If anyone’s got any spare voting papers lying unused and they just don’t know what to do with them, send them over to me and I’ll do what’s right with them 😉

    To Tim, Moira, and the staff at Fraser House (is that where Labour still is?) Awesome job. Regardless of the outcome on Sunday, all of you have done absolutely amazing work. Labour has owned the news cycle for a month straight, and brought onboard a massive number of new and former members.

    Likewise a big congratulations to the labour staff and volunteers who have put it all together, despite short notice and tight time frames. Well done.

    I, too, would like to add my voice to those congratulating not only the Labour Party staff, but also Party President Moira for seeing through the process which has changed Labour (hopefully) from being dominated by a few in caucus to a political party where the people really get to have a “say”.
    And to Tim Barnett and everyone else on the staff – its been an extraordinarily exciting process and its been extremely well managed. I can only hope the momentum keeps going !

    Yes I would also like to thank Tim Barnett, the Labour Party staff, and ElectionNZ – the contracted polling company running the voting process. I am one who had to cast an online vote (currently residing in Sydney) – the online instructions were clear and the process transparent. I submitted my vote on Wednesday. I particularly liked the online information meetings and questions opportunities (in partnership with Scoop) provided for those of us unable to get to hustings meetings.
    The ALP is about to have their first democratic vote for Party Leader (50% members; 50% Caucus). They should look across the ditch and emulate the NZLP process. I gather from what I have read, they will just send out postal ballot papers to members and leave it at that. Rather boring compared to the NZ way!! I look forward to the announcement tomorrow and congratulations to whoever wins.

  9. Murray Olsen 9

    It looks like the campaign has been well run and should give the result I look forward to (Cunliffe). However, I can’t help thinking that it can’t be a truly democratic process until members get all the say. Caucus should get one vote each and union members who are also Labour members should get one each. Because members recently had nothing, they have settled for less than they deserve.
