A ballot box arrives at Fakaofo Atoll, Tokelau, in 2007 for a referendum on self-government, supervised by the United Nations. Any move to self-government needed to be approved by two-thirds of Tokelau's voters. It was the second such referendum – another had been held in 2006 – and again failed by a small margin. Since 1926 Tokelau has been a non-self-governed territory administered by New Zealand.
