Electors are being encouraged to check their enrolment details on the new printed electoral rolls that will be on public display from Wednesday November 15.
Electoral Enrolment Centre (EEC) National Manager Murray Wicks said that a total of 40,000 new rolls were being produced for distribution to Post Shops, public libraries, court houses and registrars of electors offices around the country.
“It’s important that all electors check to see that their enrolment details are correct,” Mr Wicks said. “If your details are not correct, your vote at any future election may not count.”
Mr Wicks said that electors who have moved or changed their name since last year’s general election and have not updated their enrolment details should do so as soon as possible.
“If your enrolment details are incorrect or need updating, you will need to fill in a new enrolment form. Enrolment forms are available from all Post Shops, by calling 0800 ENROL NOW (0800 36 76 56) or from our website www.elections.org.nz,” he said. “Electors can also check their enrolment details on line by visiting the website.”
Mr Wicks said that the 230,000 eligible electors who were currently unenrolled should also fill in an enrolment form. This figure represents around 8.5 per cent of the eligible voting population.
Mr Wicks said that the number of enrolled electors had increased by 29,000 since the rolls were last printed a year ago. On average, EEC process around 100,000 changes to electors’ enrolment details every month.
