The Independent Electoral Review has been established by the Minister of Justice to review our electoral law. It is an opportunity to take a thorough look at our elections as times and technology change and to make election rules clearer and fairer for current and future generations.
We want to hear from you about how to better support people to exercise their democratic right to vote and ensure voters have confidence in election outcomes, whatever their political preferences.
We have released a consultation document and encourage you to let us know what you think. To make a submission in NZSL use Seeflow NZSL Direct:
For the public meetings, the approach for these meetings is focused on individuals or organisations being able to register for a speaking slot to share their views with the Panel, rather than the Panel presenting information to the public. We’ve included an option in the registration form for people to indicate if they have any accessibility requirements and will arrange a NZSL interpreter for anyone who request one.
