Electoral Roll Closes Soon – Reminder To Enrol

Time is running out to enrol for this year’s general election and referenda with the electoral roll closing for printing on Wednesday 27 October.

New Zealand Post's Electoral Enrolment Centre said there were around 380,000 people still to enrol for the election.

EEC National Manager Murray Wicks reminded those people yet to enrol that it was a legal requirement to do so and that having your name included on the printed electoral roll makes the voting process much easier on Polling Day.

“Even if you have enrolled and voted before, you must enrol again in order to vote this year.

“Enrolling is quick and easy to do. Enrolment forms are available at any Post Shop, by calling 0800 ENROL NOW (0800 36 76 56) or from the elections website at www.elections.org.nz. People can also call the 0800 number if they have any queries and they can check their enrolment status at the elections website.”

Mr Wicks said that to date, about 2,756,000 people had enrolled. This represents 86.2 per cent of people eligible to vote.
