It’s easy to vote from overseas and have your say in New Zealand’s elections.
Voting in local elections from overseas
Voting papers for the local body elections can't be downloaded, and can't be returned electronically. If you are living overseas, and you provided an overseas postal address when you enrolled or updated your enrolment, your council will send your voting papers by mail.
Local elections are run by local councils. If you have a question about voting in the local elections from overseas, you should contact your council's electoral officer.
Contact your local council’s electoral officer (Vote 2022 Local Elections)
