Electoral Commission preparing for Northcote by-election

Electoral Commission preparing for Northcote by-election

The Electoral Commission has begun preparations for a by-election in the Northcote electorate on Saturday 9 June.

“Voters in the Northcote general electorate will be choosing a new local Member of Parliament,” says Anita Balakrishnan, National Manager of Voting Services for the Electoral Commission. “As in any by-election, people have only one vote - for their electorate MP. There is no party vote.”

The Northcote electorate on Auckland’s North Shore includes the suburbs of Northcote, Birkenhead, Beach Haven, Hillcrest and parts of Glenfield.

“If you live in this electorate, make sure that you are enrolled and ready to vote,” says Ms Balakrishnan. “Only those who are enrolled on the general roll in the Northcote electorate are entitled to vote in the by-election.”

The Electoral Commission expects to provide around 25 voting places across the electorate for advance and election day voting.

Information about where and when to vote will be available from www.elections.org.nz from Tuesday 15 May. Overseas voting will start on Wednesday 23 May, and advance voting will start on Monday 28 May.

Enrolling is quick and easy. Go online at www.elections.org.nz, call 0800 36 76 56, pop into a PostShop or text your name and address to 3676. People can also check and update their details at www.elections.org.nz.

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