The Elec­toral Com­mis­sion and Set­tle­ment Sup­port Porirua are run­ning a free work­shop next week on par­tic­i­pat­ing in New Zealand’s demo­cratic pro­cesses.

The work­shop is be­ing lead by regis­trar of elec­tors Toni Weir and will cover who is el­i­gi­ble to en­rol, what en­rolling means, when the next elec­tion is and how to vote.

‘‘Par­tic­i­pat­ing in lo­cal democ­racy is an im­por­tant ex­pres­sion of a per­son’s sense of be­long­ing within a com­mu­nity,’’ says Set­tle­ment Sup­port co-or­di­na­tor An­nette Woods.

The work­shop, which will also give a brief over­view of the MMP ( Mixed Mem­ber Pro­por­tional) Vot­ing Sys­tem, is at Can­nons Creek School Hall, April 16, from 5.30pmtill 6.30pm.
