Source: Electoral Commission – Advance Voting in the Northland By-election Begins

Voting in the Northland by-election starts today, with the opening of advance and overseas voting.

“If you’re ready to vote now, you can. You don’t need a reason,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “To find out where and when you can vote in advance, freephone 0800 36 76 56, or visit our website www.elections.org.nz.”

“It’s important to vote in advance if you can’t get to a voting place in the Northland electorate on election day, Saturday 28 March,” says Mr Peden, “as there will be no voting places open outside the Northland electorate on election day.”

Advance votes in the Northland by-election can be cast at one of the advance voting places around the electorate, and can also be cast at the offices of Registrar of Electors across the country or at the Electoral Commission, Manners Street, Wellington.

Electoral Commission staff will also be visiting hospitals, rest homes and remand centres in the electorate to provide voting services to those unable to get to a voting place.

Voters enrolled in the Northland electorate, but currently overseas, can also vote from today.

“Northland voters going overseas after today can vote before they go, at any advance voting place,” says Mr Peden.  “The easiest option for Northland voters currently overseas is to download their voting papers from www.elections.org.nz  and upload, fax or post them back so we receive them by 7pm on election day.”

People overseas can also vote in person at overseas posts in London, Sydney and Brisbane, or can apply to have voting papers posted to them.

“Remember, if you’re not yet enrolled, the easiest ways to get a form are online at elections.org.nz, or call 0800 36 76 56, pop into a PostShop, or freetext your name and address to 3676,” says Mr Peden. “But if none of those options work for you, you’ll be able to fill in or drop off an enrolment form at any advance voting place.”

Voters can vote in advance in the Northland electorate from Wednesday 11 March at these locations:
