Overseas travel during the voting period

Current local electoral legislation, set up by central government, does not allow online or electronic voting, any forms of early voting outside of the voting period, or any voting on behalf of someone else.

If you are travelling outside of New Zealand during the voting period (16 September to midday 8 October 2022), you can request a special voting pack to be posted to you on 16 September 2022.

For us to do this, we'll need to know:

  • where you are registered on the electoral roll (your normal residential address)
  • the overseas contact address where you will be on 16 September.

You must advise us of your overseas contact address before 16 September 2022.

How to request a special voting pack

Email us now on to request a special vote pack to be sent to your overseas address.

You will be responsible for the return postage.

Your completed vote must reach us by 8 October 2022.
