Every year, thousands of New Zealanders become eligible to enrol to vote for the first time. Once you’re on the electoral roll, you get to have a say in New Zealand’s future by voting in elections.
Getting onto the roll doesn’t just happen automatically, you have to take action, but enrolling is easy! You can enrol online at vote.nz using a New Zealand driver licence, New Zealand passport or RealMe verified identity. You can also use a paper enrolment form. Download one from the website, call 0800 36 76 56 or text your name and address to 3676 to have a form sent to you.
The Electoral Commission has local teams across the country who can help you enrol and get ready to vote. Get in touch now!
