The dullest by-election in NZ history has come to an end and it’s voting time.
For such a none event there are huge ramifications for the September General Election.
The most interesting areas to keep close focus on will be the turn out in the individual suburbs of the electorate.
Based on past elections:
- Greens would want big turn out in Kingsland, Grey Lynn, Western Springs
- Labour would want big turn out in Sandringham, Morningside, Mt Albert, Mt Eden
- And National voters are strongest in Newton, Point Chev, Western Springs, Westmere and Mt Albert.
We will be covering the results live on TDB from 7pm and do a snap analysis of who the winners and losers are and what it might mean for the 2017 General Election in September.
