Have you got your voting papers yet for the 2010 Local Body elections? The official government website www.elections.org.nz can answer all your questions but here are a couple of crucial points.
What do I do if I don’t receive a voting pack? You will need to enrol or update your enrolment details. Enrolment forms are available at PostShops, by calling 0800 ENROL NOW (0800 36 76 56), by freetexting your name and address to 3676 or from the elections website http://www.elections.org.nz. You can also check your details and enrol online at the website. You will need to request a ‘special’ voting paper from the electoral officer at your local council.
Can I enrol after 20 August and still have a vote? Yes, but your enrolment form must be dropped off to a PostShop or be posted by or on Friday 8 October 2010. You will also need to request a ‘special’ voting paper from your local council electoral officer.
Take your opportunity to vote for the people who will guide our city through the difficult post quake years. Find out about many of the candidates on this website www.elections2010.co.nz. You can search by your street or by your region.
