It's the final day of the campaign trail for New Zealand's political parties, see how the day unfolded for them with RNZ's live updates.

Labour Party leader Jacinda Ardern spoke to Nine to Noon about why Labour should be re-elected and told Morning Report she has proved she can work with three parties, so she can work with two - but also hinted that governing alone might be preferable.

Meanwhile, National Party leader Judith Collins has ruled out resigning, no matter what happens in tomorrow's election.

"I never ever in my wildest dreams ever imagined that I would have to take over the leadership in the circumstances I did," she said.

Collins spoke to Nine to Noon yesterday about why National should form the next government.

Last night's 1 News Colmar Brunton poll put Labour on 46 percent and National on 31 percent. ACT and the Green Party were on 8 percent and New Zealand First on 3 percent.
