MEDIA RELEASE - Millennials turn out in force for political panel


WAIKATO Political Punch, a panel event spearheaded by Seed Waikato to get more millennials engaged in politics, was attended by nearly 100 people.

Political Punch told us that young people are concerned about our future, and want to see our representatives tackle the issues that matter to them, says Chair of Seed Waikato, Gemma Major.

“We often hear the narrative with young people that ‘my vote won’t count’, but 100 per cent of attendees said they will vote in the next election.
