Enrolments Close Tomorrow – Last Chance For 270,00

Elections Website Receiving 1000 Status Enquiries A Day


Tomorrow (Friday) is the last day that eligible electors can enrol to vote in the general election.

Eligible electors must enrol by mailing their completed enrolment form with New Zealand Post or enrolling at a Post Shop by tomorrow. This will ensure they can cast a valid vote on Polling Day. Electors cannot enrol on Polling Day.

“Eligible electors can enrol at any Post Shop, or can get an enrolment form by visiting the elections website at www.elections.org.nz,” said Electoral Enrolment Centre National Manager Murray Wicks.

Mr Wicks said that the elections website was on average receiving 1,000 hits a day from people checking their enrolment status.

To date:
 2,485,000 are currently enrolled - 90% of the eligible voting population
 270,000 eligible electors are currently not enrolled
 41% of those not enrolled are in the 18-29 age group
 67% of those not enrolled are in the 18-39 age group
 40% of those not enrolled live in the Auckland region
