Majority set to vote
With days to go before the election, 93 percent of Maungakiekie voters are enrolled to vote.
That’s just below the national average of 94 percent but well behind the 2005 Maungakiekie enrolment rate of 99 percent. Turnout at the last election was 78 percent, with 31,000 having their say. There’s still 3200 people left to enrol.
Voters can enrol to cast a special vote until the day before election day, November 8. Phone 0800 ENROL (0800-36-75-56), freetext your name and address to 3676, or go to www.elections.org.nz.
