Enrolments are facilitated by the Electoral Commission. To be on the published roll, you have until 12 August to register online or via mail-in forms. Forms can be picked up from some NZ Post outlets or can be ordered via the Electoral Commission’s toll-free number 0800 36 76 56. Forms are also available at our service centres and district libraries.
Any enrolment option requires the voter to have a form of ID (either passport or driver’s licence) or a New Zealand Government RealMe account.
To be on the published roll, you have until 12 August to enrol to vote.
If you're not enrolled by 12 August, you can still vote, but you need to apply for a special vote. Complete your special vote papers at Council's offices in Rimu Road from 16 September.
If you’ve voted in a general election, you should be enrolled to vote already.
You can check online by looking through the Preliminary Residential and Ratepayer Electoral Rolls. This will be available from Friday 15 July at our service centres and Paraparaumu, Waikanae and Ōtaki Libraries.
