Resident Roll: All parliamentary electors (those on both the General and Māori Electoral Rolls) are automatically enrolled on the Resident Roll, at the address where they live.
Any alterations to the Resident Roll (e.g. change of address details, including new postal addresses) should be made by:
- completing the appropriate form at any postal agency;
- phoning 0800 ENROLNOW (0800 36 76 56)
- accessing the Electoral Commission website on www.vote.nz
Ratepayer Roll: If a person is on the parliamentary roll in one area and pays rates on a property in another area, this person may be eligible to be enrolled on the non-resident ratepayer roll. A firm, company, corporation or society paying rates on a property may nominate one of its members or officers as a ratepayer elector (provided the nominated person resides outside the area). Ratepayer Roll enrolment forms are available at www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz, or by phoning 0800 922 822.
Those eligible to vote are all resident electors and non-resident ratepayer electors whose names appear on the electoral roll when it closes on Thursday 22 December 2022. The Preliminary Electoral Roll will be available for public inspection from Thursday 24 November 2022 to Thursday 22 December 2022 at the above locations.
