How to enrol
You're eligible to enrol and vote if you're 18 years or older, a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident, and you've lived in New Zealand continuously for 12 months or more at some time in your life.
Every eligible person in a household can enrol and post their own individual vote.
If you're enrolled for the general election, you'll automatically be placed on the Council's electoral roll.
