ENROLMENTS CLOSE FRIDAY – URGENT REMINDER TO 280,000
NEW ZEALANDERS TO ENROL

Some 280,000 eligible electors have until this Friday 26 November to enrol to vote in the general election.

“Eligible electors who haven’t enrolled can enrol up to and including Friday but they cannot enrol on Polling Day,” said Electoral Enrolment Centre National Manager Murray Wicks.

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.”

The printed electoral rolls that will be used during the election will be available for checking at Post Shops and public libraries from Tuesday 23 November.

Mr Wicks said that to date, about 2,475,000 people had enrolled. This represents 90 per cent of people eligible to vote.
