Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 8. 1965.
Sirs,—As a member of the Students Union and a candidate for the City Council. I am concerned that as many students as possible become voters at the local body elections.
How many realise that being over 21, British subjects, resident 12 months in New Zealand and three in Wellington entitles them to enrol on the Municipal Electors Roll, which is not, repeat not, the same as the Parliamentary Roll?
I am assured at the Council Offices that there will soon be 38 places at which to sign up. So help ensure a more sensible council, with a majority of the one group which is approaching the elections with unity and dignity— Labour!
