The Serious Fraud Office said it would make a decision on the New Zealand First Foundation before the election.
That was in April when the election was to be held last month.
Our EasyVote papers have arrived and early voting starts on Saturday.
Overseas voting begins on Wednesday.
That gives the SFO two days to make public its decision.
If recent polls reflect what will happen at the polls, New Zealand First won’t be in parliament anyway.
But whether or not they are, voters should know what the decision is before voting starts.
If that isn’t possible the SFO should at least give us an update on progress and when a decision will be announced.
