Enrolling is quick and easy.

“If you’re not enrolled, or have moved house or flat and haven’t updated your address details with us, you need to re-enrol now,” says Sue Braybrook. “And if you’ve got friends or whānau who aren’t enrolled - now’s a great chance to remind them!”

This includes those living in the Ikaroa-Rāwhiti electorate who are already on the Māori electoral roll, those who enrol for the first time onto the Māori roll, and those who use their Māori Electoral Option choice to change from the General to the Māori roll.
