Today, it was confirmed that the General Election will be delayed until Saturday 17 October. Given around a third of the population is under a strict level 3 lockdown, this was the right move to make.
But with endless wall to wall coverage, the deep resources of government, and a favourable media, it is hard for anyone not to see Labour have the cards stacked in their favour.
We need to change that.
Politics should be a contest of ideas and allow fair debate on the issues that matter. But more importantly, it should be open, transparent, and acknowledge the need to get our health response right so our freedoms can return.
The last few weeks have shown that scrutiny of Labour’s policy and delivery is paramount. We owe it to every Kiwi to ensure everything that can be done, is being done, to protect our borders, protect our communities, and protect our families from further prolonged hardship.
With the election date extended to Saturday 17 October, our campaign is now four weeks longer. That means four more weeks of targeted advertising, phone calling, pamphlets, direct mail, and billboards. This is critical to our campaign efforts and we really need your help to make it happen.

John, every dollar we raise goes straight to the frontline of our efforts to reach key voters around New Zealand. Your support, large or small, will ultimately help us deliver a National government come 17 October.
We can’t afford to lose another day and I hope I can count on your support.
