En­rol now to make your vote count

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Peo­ple want­ing to make vot­ing an easy process need to be quick.

Eli­ga­ble vot­ers need to be en­rolled by next Wed­nes­day to get printed on the elec­toral roll and re­ceive an EasyVote card.

Reg­is­trar of elec­tors Sharon Reece says every­one en­rolled by Wed­nes­day will get the card and a pack in the mail, mak­ing it eas­ier to vote on polling day.

Any­one en­rolled af­ter then will have to cast a spe­cial dec­la­ra­tion vote, which can take five times as long as an or­di­nary vote and means fill­ing in ex­tra forms.

Spe­cial dec­la­ra­tion votes are not counted on elec­tion night.

Ms Reece says there are still 28,000 peo­ple in cen­tral Auck­land who have not yet en­rolled to vote and need to do so quickly.

En­rol­ment forms are avail­able by free tex­ting your name and ad­dress to 3676, go­ing on­line to www.elec­tions. vis­it­ing any PostShop or call­ing 0800 EN­ROL NOW (0800-36-76-56).

Peo­ple can also check and up­date their de­tails on­line at the web­site.

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