Advance voting will be available from Wednesday 13 November for the Christchurch East electorate.

“There will be four advance voting places around the electorate, and people can also vote at the offices of Registrars of Electors throughout the country and at the Electoral Commission in Wellington,” says Mr Peden. “Full information about where, when and how to vote in advance is available on our website www.elections.org.nz or by calling 0800 36 76 56.”
