Vote Chat is a series of public interviews of politicians bought to you by the University of Otago Politics Department. In this chat Grant Robertson is interviewed by Dr Bryce Edwards in front of a public audience.
The idea is to foster a different type of political environment whereby the audience doesn't just get the usual well-rehearsed campaigning speech from a politician.
Audience participation is encouraged and you can ask your questions either on the spot in the flesh, or by tweeting @OtagoPolitics or the hashtag #OUVoteChat2011.
