Disinformation and the 2023 General Election

In the lead-up to the 2023 New Zealand General Election, The Disinformation Project has created a resource to explain disinformation and outline how it can harm our electoral democracy.

  • The themes that disinformation groups and candidates are seeking to promote during the lead-up to the election.
  • The importance of calling out disinformation and talking to people about why it should concern them, especially those asking for votes this election.
