Above is the second ad from the Electoral Commission explaining, briefly, how the voting works: We’ll rank our preferences. The winner of this referendum will then go up against the current flag next year.
The first flag referendum ad I shared was about voter registration, and that has now closed. Voting papers will now start arriving in voters’ letterboxes all across the country.
The article “The fit of peak — and the need to vote” by Michael Smythe (who I actually know) on Design Assembly pretty much sums up my own thinking on the referendum, apart from the fact that I haven’t yet made up my mind how I’ll rank the alternatives.
I’ll definitely vote in both referenda.
