Are there any rules, guidelines, or recommendations as to what is most effective? Are there any existing materials that can be worked with to create material like posters or fliers, and are there any rules around their distribution, like numbers, placement, cost, etcetera? Do the rules at http://www.elections.org.nz/rules/parti ... mmary.html
apply, even though the party is not yet registered?
Existing material is here: AGW
, PPAU: 1 2 3 4
as well as application forms
. These were all made 5 months ago, but we haven't managed to make any more lately, except this
Anything asking people to join YPNZ is not an election advertisement, and the regulated period only starts in August anyway, so even if PPNZ was already a registered party, we would be fine.
As far as techniques, we can't say much yet, can't really say last orientation was that successful. I will say that you should NOT let people walk away and say "i'll come back later" (they forget) and try to get peoples emails even if they don't want to join. (basically anyone who gives you their email for YPNZ purposes is a YPNZ member)
