The second question asks which of
four other voting systems you would
choose if New Zealand decides to
change from MMP. 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.

Want to go down in history with
the All Blacks? Massey Univer-
sity in Wellington is seeking
photographs from the public for
a project documenting the
Rugby World Cup experience.
The project, Off the Pitch, is
being run by 11 current and for-
mer photographic design
students and staff from Massey.
Curator Deidra Sullivan said
the idea was to get an alterna-
tive record of the World Cup
from what has been in the
media, to capture the stuff
The project centres on the
website, offthepitch.co.nz, which
includes photo essays, field
notes and a gallery for the public
to upload their snaps.
We're interested in the diver-
sity of different people's images
-- the diversity of different
experiences of the tournament,''
Miss Sullivan said.
An exhibition would probably
be held after the project finishes,
and then the photos would be
offered to the Alexander
Turnbull Library, she said.
Former and current Massey
photographic design students
busily snapped off-field aspects
of the tournament, including fan
zones and rugby tourism around
Project co-ordinator Olivia
Taylor said contributors came
up with their own photo-essay
ideas under the theme of non-
mainstream aspects of the tour-

shoots, others three,'' she said.
Members of the public are
encouraged to share their World
