WeatherWatch.co.nz will be closely monitoring all comments here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages up until 7pm, to ensure we abide by New Zealand’s election laws.
It’s important for all New Zealanders to cast their vote today, regardless of weather conditions.
If you feel the weather is too extreme in your area today to safely get out and vote, please use the Contact form to let us know.
Despite windy conditions in some areas today we don’t expect any serious weather issues. Conditions should also be fairly dry – so a great day to get out and vote!
From 7pm tonight (once the polls have closed) we welcome you to visit our Facebook page where you can then freely comment on political parties and individuals.
