Are your voting details correct?

Time to update and make sure your voting details are correct as all registered voters, will receive notification this week, from the Chief Electoral Office, that postal voting on the non-binding referendum on child discipline will be occurring between July 31 and August 21.

While the referendum is non binding it's well worth also taking the time now to inform yourself on both sides of the issue.

The question is
"Should a smack, as a part of good parental correction, be a criminal offence in New Zealand?"

If you google "child discipline referendum" - pages from New Zealand, you should get a good overview of the cases for both Yes and No.

I hope everyone takes the time to make an informed choice and discusses this at home before voting.
