Today is the last day to vote if you want to make sure your vote counts: Coromandel MP Scott Simpson
The flag referendum has generated a lot more interest than anyone imagined says Coromandel MP Scott Simpson.
But today (21st March) is the last day for completing and posting voting papers to make sure they are counted, he says.
Turnout so far has been high. By last Thursday over 1.7 million votes had already been received.
Scott Simpson says today (Monday 21st March) is the last day for mailing votes to ensure they are counted before the poll closes.
The Electoral Commission will announce the preliminary result at 7pm this Thursday 24th March.
