Are you enrolled for local elections?
About 70,000 local election enrolment packs have bounced back to Registrars of Electors marked ‘‘gone no address’’.
The Electoral Commission mailed update packs to the 3.1 million people on the electoral roll at the start of July, to make sure everyone who’s eligible is correctly enrolled to vote in this year’s local elections.
Local elections are held by postal vote, so it’s important people are enrolled at the correct address.
Getting back on the roll is easy – go online at elections.org.nz, freetext your name and address to 3676, call 0800 367 656 or go to any PostShop.
People have until August 16 to enrol in time to receive their voting papers in the mail.
