Time is running out for locals to get correctly enrolled to vote in the Waiheke local board by-election to ensure voting papers get sent to them in the mail.
The electoral rolls for the Waiheke local board by-election close on 15th March 2012.
“Only those people who are correctly enrolled by the time the electoral roll has closed will get voting papers in the mail to vote in the Waiheke local board by-election,” says Anna Kulkarni, Registrar of Electors for the Auckland Central electorate.
“To get your voting papers in the mail you need to be enrolled or have your details updated no later than15th March 2012.”
Currently 5,819 of Auckland Central electors are enrolled to vote in the by-election.
The by-election will elect the new Waiheke board member for the Auckland Council.
“People can get an enrolment form by calling 0800 ENROL NOW (0800 36 76 56), by Freetexting their name and address to 3676, by requesting or downloading one from the elections website at www.elections.org.nz or at any PostShop.”
