New Zealanders will get their say via the General Election this October, with two referendums as well as a general election. The two referendums are the End of Life Choice referendum, and Cannabis legalisation and control referendum. Both are a single vote with a 50% majority mandate.

According to a pol by Helius Theraputics and conducted by Horizon Research, currently the race is neck-and-neck with 49.5% for and 49.5% against. It’s a strong possibility that it will come down to voter registration and election turnout, especially if younger people raise their intention to vote.

In order to vote you must be enrolled beforehand.

According to law, to enrol and vote, you need to be 18 years or older, a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident, and have lived in New Zealand continuously for 12 months or more at some time in your life.
