Yeah, nice joke. I ranted about this before, but a quick review: According to the rules, any New Zealand citizen who has not been in New Zealand in the last three years is disenfranchised. Still, it is good to see the parties recognising the potential of the expat vote.  Just one little snippet from the end, though:

There was also a lot of discussion about interest-free student loans, and wildly varying levels of knowledge about the election.

Do those varying levels of knowledge include the fact that those of us who haven’t been home in the last three years are not eligible to vote?
