    William Tobin here. Great article, Jacob. One minor correction, though. I voted for the McGillicuddy Serious Party in 1993, not 2017. That was when New Zealand still had First-Past-The-Post as its electoral system, and my vote for McGillicuddy was a protest against not having much say in a safe seat. New Zealand has since adopted a proportional system of representation, so my vote now counts, and it felt great in 2017 to have people elected that I had voted for both in the constituency and from the national list.
