TVNZ Young Voters' Debate

The soaring living costs, a stressful rental market, and the threat of climate change, it can feel like a shit time to be a young person.

So we’re bringing you politicians from six of the main parties to tell us why they’ve got the answers.The debate feature's Erica Stanford from National, Arena Williams from Labour, Brooke van Velden from ACT, Chloë Swarbrick from the Green Party, Lee Donoghue from NZ First and Hana Hana-Rawhiti Maipi-Clarke from Te Pāti Māori.

With less than a month till election day, it’s already looking a tight race between the two major parties. And as smaller parties position themselves as powerbrokers, everything is up for grabs including your vote.
