    Hello – does anyone know the fax number to send voting papers to? On the Elections.org.nz website it says to send to +64 4 494 2300, but I have tried this number on two different days this week from two different locations and the fax doesn’t work. The number seems to connect but the “pages” are not received. If someone could assist, that would be appreciated.

    Maybe the fax isn’t ‘on’ until voting starts NZ time?

    A good point, but they don’t state this, only to get it in earlier rather than later. From their instructions:

    “1. Return of voting papers by fax
    (i) fax the completed voting papers and declaration to the Electoral Commission in Wellington on fax number: +64 4 494 2300
    (ii) your voting papers will be received and processed in a secure area by an appointed electoral official.

    Your faxed voting papers and declaration must be received by 7.00pm (NZ time) on Saturday, 26 November 2011. Please do not leave it until the last minute!”

    Happy to be a source of referrals to you O Great One! The latter part of this month has been busy indeed; Keeping Stock is on the cusp of another record month both for unique visits and page views, and last week saw my highest traffic ever.

    Seán,
    its on alright, but even 10 days ago I had trouble faxing to it and long delays. Our fax machine actually suspended the attempt and tried again later. Keep trying.

    As a supporter of “My Personal Election Goal”, I’m really peeved with the bias shown towards that staple dinosaur “General Debate”, which has the unfair advantage of being posted at 8am each day, hence giving it an longer exposure.

    When will specialist topics get their due recognition? And when will people recognize the unfair coverage that “General Debate” gets?

    (This post dedicated to those poor addicted souls who are denied the right to argue about politics for a few hours)

    I just voted in person in London it was very busy, a lot of people like me left it to the last minute.

    The stats by country would be interesting.

    Must say I am surprised to see Firefox still trailing Internet Explorer in both Kiwiblog and Whaleoil. I have been using Firefox now for several versions, and will never go back to IE.

    The people using a decent browser are split between 2-3 camps (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) while IE is on its own as the crap browser.

    I wonder if Chrome user’s are aware of the manipulation of the Google search engine when accessing it thru Chrome – browsers are sent to proxy Google pages (eg:www.searchqu.com) which reprioritise the search so that commercial sites get priority plus a lot of other bumph. . eg. a search for NZ Herald does not even bring up the Herald web site; alternatively a search on http://www.google.com gives it top priority. Others may have solutions to avoiding this nuisance but one way is to bookmark google.com.

    I’m a bit surprised at the stats with IOS and Safari. I wonder if this well out of line with general usage, 13% using OSX ? I can understand the IOS a bit better, but 50:50 iPhone (or I suppose iPod) and iPad, that would seem to be a lot of fondleslabs in use. I guess Safari Is the default browser for all IOS versions though. And I note Android at a mere 2%, Linux at 1%, hmm. Sent of course from my iPhone.

    I had no problem with the fax number – sent it through Tuesday night at what would have been about 1pm Wednesday NZ Time. Keep trying, you’ve still got two and a half hours.

    It’s a shame that they don’t collate special/overseas votes by country. It would be fascinating to see if there was any difference between US expats and UK expats, for example.

    Voted this morning at Riverhead School. Was pretty empty at 9am, which was nice. The only problem (for my partner) was the woman on the Special Votes desk didn’t seem to understand how Special Votes worked. Oh well they got there in the end.

    As an aside, the online newspapers have really been pissing me off today with their trivial shite stories. Yeah I know, situation normal, but it seems the stops have been well and truly pulled out on the only day every 3 years when they can’t mention Parliament.
