A few days ago Justice Minister Andrew Little announced plans to change the law on prisoner voting rights in time for the 2020 election, to allow prisoners serving sentences of three years or under to vote. 

Deb Rawson discusses this shift in policy with law Professor Edward Willis from the University of Auckland, and then later with Arthur Taylor, a former prisoner who sued the Attorney-General for the right of prisoners to vote.

Taylor's interview can be found here:
