You'll find out more about them at www.elections.org.nz On the Referendum paper, there are two questions to answer. The first is whether you think New Zealand should keep MMP, or change to another voting system. At this year's General Election, there's a referendum on our voting system. So when you go to vote, along with your orange ballot paper for the General Election, you'll get a purple Referendum one too. If we vote for a change of system, Parliament will decide if there is another referendum in 2014 to choose between MMP and the most popular alternative. If we vote to keep MMP, there will be an independent review to assess if there should be any changes to the way it works.
