Every election, New Zealanders vote on who they want to represent them and their communities in Parliament, and the party they want to form the next Government.
In order to have your say and vote in the 2020 election, you must be enrolled. You can enrol to vote if you are:
- 18 years or older
- A New Zealand citizen or permanent resident
- Have lived in New Zealand for more than one year continuously at some time
Even if you have enrolled before, it’s important to check and update your details to make sure you will be able to vote on 19 September.
New Zealand’s elections are run through the Electoral Commission. To learn more about the 2020 election, New Zealand’s system of Government, or have any other election questions answered, visit the Electoral Commission website.
