The Māori Electoral Option runs until 2 august 2018
ENROLLING TO VOTE IN NEW ZEALAND

If you want to vote, take part in elections, or sign a petition you need to be enrolled to vote. Voting is an important way to have your say on the issues that affect you, your friends, and your whānau.

If you’re Māori and enrolling for the first time, you get to choose whether to be on the Māori Roll or the General Roll. After that, you can choose to change your roll type during a Māori Electoral Option, which happens once every five or six years.
