En­rol now to vote in the by­elec­tion

Central Leader - - News -

Lo­cals want­ing to have their say in the up­com­ing Mt Al­bert by­elec­tion need to en­rol as soon as pos­si­ble.

Mon­day is the cut­off date to get on the printed elec­toral roll for the June 13 by­elec­tion.

Those who en­rol af­ter Mon­day will have to cast a spe­cial vote, which is a longer process to go through.

Mt Al­bert elec­torate out­reach co­or­di­na­tor Sharon Reece says peo­ple who have moved into the elec­torate since the gen­eral elec­tion and 18 to 29-year-olds are among those be­ing tar­geted.

“We are tar­get­ing th­ese lo­cals as they make up most of the peo­ple not en­rolled in the elec­torate,” says Ms Reece.

To be el­i­gi­ble to vote you must be 18 or over, be a New Zealand ci­ti­zen or per­ma­nent res­i­dent who has lived in New Zealand con­tinu- ously for 12 months and have lived in the Mt Al­bert elec­torate for one month or more.

To en­rol visit www. elec­tions.org.nz, free­text your name and ad­dress to 3676, visit a PostShop or call 0800 EN­ROL NOW (080036-76-56).
