Electoral Roll For By-Election Closes Friday

Time is running out for eligible electors in the Te Tai Hauauru electorate to enrol or update their enrolment details for the printed electoral roll that will be used in the 10 July by-election.

Registrar of Electors Helen Johnson said that the printed electoral roll for the by-election will close this Friday, 4 June.

“Eligible electors that are correctly enrolled by 4 June will receive a voting information pack in the mail a week before Election day.

“The pack will contain useful information such as a list of polling places and candidates, as well as an EasyVote card for them to take when they vote,” Mrs Johnson said.

Mrs Johnson said that eligible electors can still enrol after 4 June, however they would then need to cast a time consuming special declaration vote.

“We’re encouraging people to enrol or update their details as soon as possible to make sure they’re enrolled in time to have their say on Election day.”

Mrs Johnson said that only electors registered on the electoral roll for Te Tai Hauauru were able to vote in the by-election.

“People can check to see if they are registered for the electorate at www.elections.org.nz. Updated lists of electors are also available for checking at PostShops, public libraries and courthouses within the Te Tai Hauauru electorate and at all Registrars of Electors offices.”

Mrs Johnson said that registered electors should check the rolls to ensure that their enrolment details are up to date.

“Anyone who has moved house, changed their name or other details recently should update their enrolment details to make sure these are correct. You can update your details by filling in a new enrolment form.”

Enrolment forms are available at PostShops, by calling 0800 ENROL NOW (0800 36 76 56) or from www.elections.org.nz. People can check and update their details at the site and can enrol online.
