Youth voters – here’s your chance to interview mayoral candidates about issues you care about. Auckland Youth Council is hosting a youth-led mayoral candidates debate known as, ‘Recruit Your Mayor’. Those eligible to vote (over 18 years) are encouraged to get involved. The Youth Council is harnessing interactive technology for the debate. Through a smartphone, people attending the live debate (or viewing a livestream of it at a specified location) are able to send questions via text and interact with candidates through live polling. The debate will cover topics from housing, the environment, transport and rates to youth engagement.
