Hot on the heels of next week's Final Leaders Debate between Jacinda Ardern and Bill English comes the Banter Election Special.

With just two episodes to go, we've shaken the schedule up so that an hour-long special episode of Banter will air Wednesday 20 September at 9.30pm.

Tim will be joined by familiar faces and friends of the show Heather Du-Plessis Allen, Mikey Havoc, Toby Manhire, Matthew Hooton, Alice Sneddon and James Nokise.

Together the panel will come together to discuss the debate itself and all things politics, ahead of this year's General Election being held on Saturday 23 September.


For those of you out there that are keen, here's some things you can do to get involved in our Election Special:

1. Join the Banter LIVE studio audience at the TVNZ Studios in Auckland. We still have tickets available, be sure to register your interest in attending here.

2. Tweet and comment your questions/statements about topics raised to #BanterTVNZ and TVNZ DUKE's Facebook page.

3. Watch on-air on TVNZ DUKE (Freeview 13 and Sky 23) or online right here on Wednesday 20 September at 9.30pm.
