This order is the Electoral Main Rolls Closing Order 2020.

2 Date for closing of main rolls

The main roll for every general electoral district and for every Māori electoral district closes on 16 August 2020.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

As part of the enrolment inquiry, this order closes, as at 16 August 2020, the main rolls for all electoral districts. This enables the main rolls to be printed and published as at that date. They will then be available to the public for checking. The making of this order does not preclude the making of a subsequent order later in 2020 or the printing of a composite roll as at writ day. Although this order closes the main rolls for the purposes of printing and inspection, electors may still enrol and update their information before election day. An elector may also enrol and update their information on election day if they are present in New Zealand on that day. This order revokes the Electoral Main Rolls Closing Order 2017.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 9 July 2020.
