Gallipoli & Anzac Day 2015: Have your say by 25 November

15 November 2012

Have your say on the proposed ballot system to allocate attendance passes for New Zealanders to attend services to mark the centenary of Anzac Day at Gallipoli in Turkey in 2015. Complete the online survey by 25 November 2012.

It’s estimated that up to 40,000 New Zealanders and Australians are interested in attending, which would significantly exceed the capacity of the small commemorative site which safely holds about 10,000.

The Government will run a ballot system to allocate New Zealand’s share of the attendance passes.  The passes are free but those allocated a pass will pay all their own travel, accommodation, and other costs.

We want to hear your views about how the ballot system would work.  How many tickets should each person draw?  Should some tickets be allocated to special categories of New Zealanders such as descendants, youth, veterans, members of the Defence Force? 

Read the discussion paper and complete the survey by midnight on 25 November 2012 at www.gallipoli2015.govt.nz.
