Maori option in the mail
More than 427,000 orange Maori Electoral Option packs will be in the mail this week.
Murray Wicks, the national manager of Enrolment Services, says the packs are going out everyone who is enrolled to vote who has identified themselves as of Maori descent … regardless of whether they are on the Maori or the general roll.
The pack contains information about how to switch between the rolls.
People are being urged to forward on packs if the person they are meant for has moved, or otherwise post back to the enrolment office.
If people don’t receive a pack, it could be because they are not correctly enrolled to vote, so they should text their name and address to 3676, get a form from any postshop, or update their details online at elections.org.nz.
There are 235,000 voters on the Maori Roll and 192,000 on the General Roll.
