Tips for Voting in the Mana by-Election

Monday 15 November 2010 - Electoral Commission Te Kaitiaki Take Kōwhiri
Tips for Voting in the Mana by-Election.

The Electoral Commission has two tips for voters in Saturday’s Mana by-election - take your EasyVote card and go with a friend or family member if that would help.

“There are 42 polling places for the Mana by-election across the electorate, open from 9am until 7pm sharp on election day. They are located across the community – including in 27 schools - to make voting easy and accessible,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer.

“People should take their personalised EasyVote card with them when they vote, and I would also encourage them to go with friends or family if that makes the voting experience better.”

Polling places are usually busiest between 9am and 11am. “Taking your EasyVote card will ensure you get your voting papers as quickly and smoothly as possible, whenever you go and vote” says Mr Peden. People can still vote without their EasyVote card. “It can also be helpful for those with English as a second language to take someone they know with them when they vote.”

The Electoral Commission is reminding people that if they cannot get to a polling place in Mana on Saturday, they need to vote in advance. Advance voting closes on Friday (19 November).

The last chance to enrol to vote in the by-election is Friday.
“You can’t enrol on Saturday to vote in the by-election. Anyone who hasn’t enrolled yet needs to do it now,” says Mr Peden.
Election results will be available from www.electionresults.govt.nz progressively after voting closes at 7pm.
