South Canterbury Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

There are just 10 days un­til the gen­eral elec­tion on Septem­ber 23, and it’s not too late to en­rol if you haven’t al­ready.

Those aged be­tween 25 and 29 ap­pear to have the low­est take up of en­rol­ments ac­cord­ing to the lat­est fig­ures. They have un­til Septem­ber 22 to get en­rolled.

To en­cour­age every­one who is el­i­gi­ble to vote, the elec­tion of­fice has made the process as easy as pos­si­ble. The choices are: com­plete a form on­line, free text your name and ad­dress to 3676, call free 0800 36 76 56 or go into any PostShop.

With a party vote as well as an elec­torate vote you not only get to choose which party you want to gov­ern but who you want to rep­re­sent your area. The vot­ing booths in each area will be open from 9am to 7pm but early vot­ing is avail­able if you will be out­side your elec­torate on the day.

On a to­tally dif­fer­ent sub­ject there ap­pears to be a gap in the tourism mar­ket as over­seas vis­i­tors snap up Boomerang Bags be­cause they were the only items they could find with ‘Ti­maru’ writ­ten on them.
