We Need You This Year



Election 2023

On Saturday 14 October 2023 New Zealand will go to the polls to elect the next government. With your help, we intend it to be a National-led government. The feedback I am hearing certainly indicates that's what many of you want. I often get asked how people can help and I'm grateful for anyone who will give their time to me and my campaign team.

The official campaign period starts on Saturday 15 July and concludes at midnight on Friday 13 October. There are a number of key roles that I am currently recruiting for and I would greatly appreciate the support of volunteers in a number of areas including:

  • Social Media - sharing posts to grow social media followers and get our messaging out to voters;

  • Events - helping plan, manage and attend events throughout the electorate;

  • Phone calls - contacting constituents to tell them about news or events they may like to attend, and asking whether they need assistance to get to a polling booth;

  • Fund raising - helping to sell tickets to events, and encouraging new members to join the National Party;

  • Scrutineering - National has scrutineers at each polling booth with voting starting two weeks prior to 14 October. We need a large number of volunteers to ensure we have full coverage of each booth every day for shifts of three to five hours.

  • Street Corner Meetings - on the last three weekends prior to Election Day we hold meetings in 20 different neighbourhoods. We need locals to attend and to spread the word about each upcoming meeting to ensure as many people as possible know about the opportunity to connect with me as National's sitting MP and 2023 candidate.

  • Flyer Deliveries - letter box deliveries about upcoming street corner meetings as well as pamphlets that come from National's leadership and policy teams;

  • Door Knocking - this means you'd be part of the team who support me as I visit neighbourhoods and introduce myself to answer questions they may have about the upcoming election.

  • Signage - we have a range of signs that we want placed throughout the electorate, from small, portable lawn signs to extra large hoardings. Some are mobile, others are fixed in place for the duration of the campaign.

  • Hoardings - these are the large, wood-mounted billboards that are placed at key locations. Erecting, maintaining and dismantling them requires strength, good humour and skill with tools. It's a tight team of committed volunteers who are worth their weight in gold. 

  • Human Hoardings - groups of supporters wearing blue and waving coreflute signs at key locations. Usually held at at rush hour at busy intersections where people are sitting in traffic, this is a fun and easy activity that takes place over the last couple of weeks of the campaign. Reasonable fitness is required as you'll be standing for an hour or so each time.

  • Staffing - we need volunteers to represent me and the National Party at events throughout the electorate, chatting to constituents and answering questions and taking feedback.

  • Storage - short term and long term storage for our hoarding materials and maintenance. A garage with power, workshop and easy vehicle access during the campaign period, and for storage of the hoarding materials after the campaign has finished.

If you are not already a member, I'd love you to join us. You can sign up here.

Please email me with any queries about the campaign and your availability to assist; my campaign address is [email protected]. I look forward to working with you as, together, we do everything possible to bring National back to Government this October. 

With my best wishes,


Todd Muller
MP for Bay of Plenty
