Raglan teacher gifts students his vote

From First Up, 5:06 am on 16 October 2020

In Raglan a teacher is casting his vote for the first time ever in this Saturday's election and he's letting his students decide which boxes get a tick. Raglan Area School teacher Joseph Rao has never voted before but this election he's going to, and his year 9 and 10 students are behind the decision. He told our reporter Louise Ternouth they've been having political discussions for months and his students views are extremely relevant, so he's "gifted" them his vote.
