Robert Peden –
The local elections are on their way, and from Monday New Zealanders will be asked to check whether they are enrolled and ready.
From June 27, 2016, we will be sending out enrolment update packs to all voters. We are asking everyone to check their packs to make sure that we have their details correct, so that they don’t miss out on voting in the local elections.
All you would need to do is check that your details are right. If they are correct, you do not need to do anything more. If anything needs updating, make the changes and send them back to us immediately.
Please call us on 0800-367656; free-text 3676 or visit www.elections.org.nz
Peter Peden is Chief Electoral Officer at the Electoral Commission, Wellington.
