miss 19 was a first-time voter, but for whatever reason, was in a totally crabby mood and wouldn't let me take her picture.
the population of new zealand is 4 million and just under 3 million are registered voters: YES - we are an aging population! we had a 78% voter turnout in the weekend which was apparently VERY LOW. we've set ourselves such high standards!!!
and so we should - new zealand was the FIRST country in the world to given women the vote!!!
it was a gorgeous day too. we took miss 10 to softball at 9am and you only make the mistake of NOT bringing anything to sit on ONCE...
