Briefing for General Election

Ric Carlyon - Saturday, August 26, 2017

Justices of the Peace belonging to the Mangere Support Group were briefed at their recent meeting in preparation for the upcoming General Election.
The local Returning Officer and several representatives outlined their busy Electoral schedules, currently phase one of their tasks: the campaign to get as many eligible people enrolled as possible. Then, later in the electoral process they try to ensure that all electors have an opportunity to vote.
There’s a change this election: once advance voting begins on Monday 11 September, those still not enrolled can go to an advance polling place and not only enrol, but in the one visit, also place their vote. 

Mangere Support Group gets the gen on upcoming Election

It was noted at the meeting that Justices have official roles in the General Election as observers of “free and fair” elections throughout the electoral process: before polling day (accompanying those taking votes at hospitals, rest homes etc), on the day, (at polling places) and after polling day (at the final, official count).
