50,000 need to re-en­rol be­fore elec­tion

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

About 50,000 New Zealan­ders need to get back on the elec­toral roll be­cause their en­rol­ment up­date pack has bounced back marked ‘gone – no ad­dress’.

The Elec­toral En­rol­ment Cen­tre mailed en­rol­ment up­date packs to ev­ery­one on the elec­toral roll at the end of May, to let them know the elec­tion is on its way, and to ask them to check their en­rol­ment de­tails.

‘‘If you are one of the 50,000 or so vot­ers whose pack has re­turned to us be­cause you’ve moved house and not up­dated your en­rol­ment de­tails, you have been re­moved from the elec­toral roll,’’ says Mur­ray Wicks, na­tional man­ager, Elec­toral En­rol­ment Cen­tre.

Welling­ton Cen­tral has had the most vot­ers re­moved from the roll, while Taranaki-King Coun­try has had the least.

‘‘If you didn’t get an en­rol­ment up­date pack, you need to en­rol ,’’ says Mr Wicks.
