Last Chance to Enrol to Vote – Don’t Miss Out

Last Chance to Enrol to Vote – Don’t Miss Out

If you’re not enrolled now, you need to hurry or you won’t be able to vote in this Saturday’s general election.

“Election day is almost here, and it’s your last chance to enrol,” says Murray Wicks, National Manager, Enrolment Services. “It’s not too late, but you need to do it right now.”

“The last chance to enrol is Friday 19 September. You can’t enrol on election day.”

Enrolment levels across the country have improved, with 91.7% of eligible voters now on the roll. But there are still 280,500 eligible voters who are not enrolled or ready to vote on election day.

“If you haven’t enrolled yet, you can’t leave it any longer. You must get an enrolment form, fill it in and get it back to us by Friday 19 September,” says Mr Wicks.

“To make sure your enrolment form reaches us in time the easiest thing to do is pick one up at a PostShop, fill it in and hand it to the staff there and then. It only takes a minute,” says Murray Wicks.

You can also get and return enrolment forms online at www.elections.org.nz.

“We want all New Zealanders to have their say on Saturday,” says Mr Wicks. “Your vote matters, but it will only count if you are enrolled. Enrol today.”

More information about enrolling and voting is available from www.elections.org.nz.
