DO YOUR RESEARCH
lived here for at least a year, or a resident of the Cook Islands, Australia, Niue or Tokelau who has lived here for at least a year.
If you’re eligible to vote but haven’t enrolled yet, go to elections.org.nz, visit your nearest PostShop, call 0800 36 76 56, or text your address to 3676. You can enrol to vote up until September 22 – the day before the election.
There’s still plenty of time to find out which party and policies align most with your way of thinking. Watch the news, read newspapers, check out Neighbourly and do your own independent research. In the weeks leading up to the election you’ll also receive an info pack in the mail which includes details about the local MPs you can vote for.
You don’t have to wait until September 23 - some polling booths will be open early so you can avoid the rush.
