'''Clinton''' is a small town in South Otago, in New Zealand's South Island. It is located on State Highway 1 (State Highway 1 (New Zealand)) approximately half way between Balclutha (Balclutha, New Zealand) and Gore (Gore, New Zealand) (the section of State Highway 1 between Clinton and Gore is known as "The Presidential Highway", after Bill Clinton and Al Gore), and the Main South Line railway passes through the town. Description Clutha-Southland was promulgated as one of the original 65 MMP electorates, centered on Southland (Southland District) district and covering an area stretching from Fiordland across the far south of the South Island to the south Otago coast. Its largest population centres are Gore (Gore, New Zealand) and Balclutha (Balclutha, New Zealand). In 2008 (New Zealand general election, 2008), the seat of Otago (Otago (New Zealand electorate)) was abolished and split between the Waitaki and Clutha-Southland electorates, and parts of Central Otago, primarily around Arrowtown, Queenstown (Queenstown, New Zealand) and Roxburgh were also transferred to Clutha-Southland. Following a question at the Gore, New Zealand talk page (Talk:Gore, New Zealand), I've been helping to track down which church in East Gore is one of the two remaining wooden gothic churches designed by Robert Lawson (Robert Lawson (architect)). Now that we have confirmed that it is the old East Gore Presbyterian Church, I was wondering if there was a Kiwipedian anywhere near Gore with some ability with a camera who could take a photograph of it for the Gore, New Zealand and Robert Lawson articles?
