Palmerston North By-Election Calling Sunday!

We’re rallying our volunteers across the country to help us let voters know about Green Party Candidate Vanessa Rozenberg's run for the Palmerston North City Council By-Election! Can we count on you to join us to help spread our message to voters? 

Don’t worry if you’ve never made calls before — calling is easy even for the newest callers. We’ll provide you with a script and messaging resources. And the best part is, you can start calling by joining this event virtually on Zoom and you’ll be joining other members of our Green team. All you'll need is a laptop, headphones and an internet connection!

Calling and talking to voters isn’t about answering tough policy questions (that’s what our MPs and candidates are for!) It’s about changing minds and shifting votes through heartfelt conversations about the Aotearoa we want to see.

To join the meeting you will use our Zoom link and passcode 349454.

Keep an eye on your inbox, we'll remind you 1 hour before the meeting.
