Voting packs sent out
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 officer Walter Wilson says the EasyVote card and information pack has all the key
voting information 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.elec tions.org.nz.
“People can’t enrol on election day, so anyone still to enrol should do it by Friday,” Mr Wilson says.
