Elec­tion count­down

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Elec­tion day is on Satur­day and cen­tral Auck­land res­i­dents should be gear­ing up to vote.

By now, most en­rolled peo­ple should have re­ceived their EasyVote in­for­ma­tion packs in the mail with de­tails of the voter’s elec­torate, who is stand­ing, where to vote, in­for­ma­tion on MMP and a per­son­alised EasyVote card to take on the day.

Auck­land Cen­tral elec­torate re­turn­ing offi Wal­ter Wil­son says the EasyVote card and in­for­ma­tion pack has all the key in­for­ma­tion to make vot­ing easy.

Any­one who en­rolled af­ter Oc­to­ber 8 will get an EasyVote in­for­ma­tion pack but no card.

“As elec­tion day draws nearer we are get­ting busier with peo­ple vot­ing in ad­vance, get­ting staff trained and pre­par­ing polling places for elec­tion day,” Mr Wil­son says.

Polling places across the east­ern elec­torates are in lo­ca­tions such as schools, com­mu­nity halls and churches.

“We en­cour­age peo­ple to vote at a polling place in their elec­torate on elec­tion day.

“If you can’t make it to a polling place in your elec­torate, then it may be eas­ier for you to vote in ad­vance.”

Polling places open at 9am on Satur­day and close at 7pm.

De­tails of where to vote are also avail­able from www.elec­tions.org. nz.

“Peo­ple can’t en­rol on elec­tion day, so any­one still to en­rol should do it by Fri­day,” Mr Wil­son says.
