At this year’s general election, for the first time, there will be a bilingual voting place where election staff will be able to take people through the voting process in te reo Māori.
The te reo Māori voting place is a community initiative led by the Māori medium school Te Wharekura O Rakaumanga and supported by the Electoral Commission.
The kura has a network of community members and past pupils who are fluent Māori speakers and can work in the voting place, delivering voting services to the local community in Māori. The voting papers for the election and referendums will be in English.
The voting place in Te Hokioi Building at 26 McDiarmid Crescent will be open:
- Saturday 10 October 9am-5pm
- Monday 12 October – Friday 16 October 3pm-7pm
- Saturday 17 October 9am-7pm
