The Herald reports:
Mt Albert resident Jim Li, from China, said he had received a call on Sunday from a Labour official asking him to “book” a time to be taken to the voting centre this week.
“I said I wanted to wait until June 13, but he told me that it is safer to vote now, because I will be breaking the law if I missed voting on polling day. I agreed, because I didn’t want to become a criminal,” said Mr Li in Mandarin.
One day I should do a post on Labour’s dirty tricks in Onehunga and other Auckland seats when we had FPP. Non residents were enrolled, fake enrolments, dozens enrolled at same address, multiple voting etc. One advanatage of MMP is it has redueced the incentive for voter fraud, as winning an individual seat is not so important now and nationwide a few hundred votes has little significance.Tags: Labour, Mt Albert
