AmeriNZ 115 – How NZ votes

Today I tell you how New Zealand’s government is organised and about our proportional election system, called MMP. I have to get all that out of the way so that when I talk about the election campaign, it’ll make more sense. But that’s the only topic today, so the episode is kind of short.

At the very end of the episode is a PSA I made promoting voter registration for overseas voters (who are also supporters of Barack Obama).
