Special Votes are available to electors:
- whose names do not appear on the Final Electoral Roll, but who qualify as electors, ie the elector has enrolled after the closing of the roll
- who did not receive a voting paper previously posted to them
- who spoil or damage a voting paper previously posted to them
- who are on the unpublished roll
Special Votes can be posted directly out to electors. Requests for the voting papers can be made at Napier City Council. The completed voting papers however, must be returned to the Electoral Officer in the envelope supplied.
Special Votes require the completion of a statutory declaration. This is a legal requirement and a protection for electors against possible duplicate voting.
If an elector requests a Special Vote and is not on the Parliamentary Roll (e.g. just turned 18 years of age), the person must enrol at any Post Shop during normal business hours. Special Vote Declarations are forwarded to Registrars of Electors for verification that the elector is eligible and has enrolled as a Parliamentary elector.
NOTE: Special Votes cannot be collected by candidates or their assistants for distribution to electors.
