The Green Parties Electoral (Strengthening Democracy) Amendment Bill has recently been drawn, allowing topics of electoral reform in Aotearoa to be brought to the surface.

The most talked-about part of the bill right now is the lowering of the voting age to sixteen, which would see New Zealand join countries like Scotland, Austria, Argentina, and Brazil amongst others.

Other aspects of the bill include enabling voters of Māori descent to change roll type at any time, implementing donation transparency and implementing the 2012 MMP Review recommendations.

To learn more, Liam spoke to the Greens spokesperson for electoral reform, Golriz Gharaman.

As this bill aims to vastly widen the eligibility to vote, many may question how people such as minors and prisoners could vote and change how our country works.

Thus, Liam also spoke to Danny Osborne, a political psychology professor from Otago University about how these groups may approach voting and how we could change our electoral system for the better.
