#WhyIVote Call For Submissions

Women’s March Aotearoa New Zealand needs your help to inspire more women to vote in the September 2017 general election with our #WhyIVote action.

We have an exciting new campaign that we hope you can help us with. We want to know why you vote to inspire others to vote in this year’s election.

The women of Aotearoa New Zealand have had the right to vote for almost 125 years, but during the 2014 general election only two thirds of those aged 18 to 29 voted.
We want to change that. Women deserve and need to make their voices heard.

So this election let’s make all our votes count.

We want to change that. Women deserve and need to make their voices heard.

So please help us inspire women to vote by sending us your video telling us #whyIvote.

  • Ensure that background noise is kept to a minimum.
