Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS “A FRENCH CONNECTION” -

Mi­grant com­mu­ni­ties and the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion are work­ing to­gether to spread the word about get­ting en­rolled and ready to vote in the gen­eral elec­tion on Septem­ber 23. The Com­mis­sion will be con­nect­ing with com­mu­ni­ties through­out the Auck­land Re­gional Mi­grant Ser­vices Trust and the Chi­nese New Set­tlers Ser­vices Trust. Na­tional man­ager of en­rol­ment and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment Mandy Bo­hte said it was reach­ing out in var­i­ous ways. Mi­grants tended to be less likely to to be en­rolled and vote than other vot­ers, she said. Peo­ple can en­roll or up­date their de­tails by fill­ing in an en­rol­ment form. Forms are avail­able at www.elec­tions.org.nz, Post­Shops or by tex­ting their name and ad­dress to 3676.
