Referendum 2020
END OF LIFE CHOICE ACT

At this year's General Election all voters will be invited to support or reject the End of Life Choice Act 2019.

At the Waikato and Taranaki Diocesan Synod of 2019 the Diocese voted to reject any effort to legalise euthanasia or physician-assisted-suicide. We are asking you to affirm that decision at this year's Referendum: please vote "No" to reject the End of Life Choice (EOLC) Act.
Please watch and share this short video to help understand why you should reject the End of Life Choice Act 2019.

Referendum 2020

CANNABIS LAW REFORM

The second of the two referenda to be considered at this year's General Election on September 19 concerns proposed cannabis legislation. All registered voters will be offered the following two statements:

  • Yes, I support the proposed Cannabis Legalization and Control Bill
  • No, I do not support the proposed Cannabis Legalization and Control Bill

The NZ Government has created a site that introduces the referendum, associated legislation, and additional information.

Please note:
  • this referendum is about legalizing cannabis rather than decriminalization;
  • this referendum IS NOT about medicinal cannabis. The Medicinal Cannabis Scheme came into effect on 1 May, 2020. You can read more about it here.
  • the proposed law would allow individuals to obtain up to 14 grams of dried cannabis per day (approximately 21 'joints' per person, per day)
