In 2017, voter turnout was up across the board – but the biggest increases were among younger voters.
Now, New Zealand could be seeing evidence of a move in the opposite direction, with indications that leftwing support among young people could be sinking
Data suggesting young voters were swinging right generated surprise among some New Zealand commentators, and denial from the Labour party.
It’s possible a large part of turning tides in the youth vote may be driven by a post-Ardern flip in the voting intentions of young women.
According to the Guardian, while the Labour government made strong commitments to take action on issues like housing and child poverty, progress on those central issues has been achingly slow.
