Getting to the Polls - Phil Goff


This election I’ve been able to provide a special service for my electorate.  My new van which serves as a mobile electorate office has a wheelchair hoist and today I put it to good use.


Two Mt Roskill constituents Reo Chisholm and Sheryl Bartram, took advantage of the offer for a ride to the Wesley Community Centre where they cast early votes for this year’s election. 

If you’re in a wheelchair getting out to vote is tougher than it is for most people.  Sheryl and Reo were both determined to vote and we were glad to make it a bit easier for them.
