Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2011, are made under the Electoral Act 1993 (the Act). They amend regulations made under the Act. The fees for the supply of rolls and electoral information and for the purchase of habitation indexes are adjusted to reflect the movement in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index (All Groups) since 1 July 2004.

The fees replaced are inclusive of goods and services tax (GST), but were not amended directly to reflect the 1 October 2010 GST increase, and so differed from those actually charged. The new fees are also GST inclusive.
