ME WHAKAURU NGA INGOA O TE HUNGA
POOTI KI TE RARANGI INGOA

Kia ahei ai te tangata ki te pooti i te pootitanga mema Paremata i tenei tau, me tuhi ia i tana ingoa me era atu ahuatanga ki tetahi pukapuka “Tono mo te Rekitatanga Pooti”. E hara i te mea ko te hunga anake kaore ano o ratou ingoa kia eke ki te rarangi ingoa nei e tuhi i aua pukapuka ko te katoa o nga mea kua eke noa atu o ratou na ingoa.

E kore e ahei te tangata kaore tona ingoa i runga i te rarangi ingoa ki te pooti i tenei tau.

E hara i te mea ka penei tonu ia pootitanga engari i tenei tau kei te whakahouia te rarangi ingoa. Kua whakataua e te ture me penei me tono hou ano te hunga pooti.

Kua tukutukua nga pukapuka nei ki nga kainga Maori katoa a ko nga mea i hapa me haere atu ki nga poutapeta e tata ana. He reo rua aua pukapuka Maori, Pakeha.

ALL VOTERS MUST RE-ENROL

To vote in this year's elections, all Maoris have to fill in a form called an ‘Application for Enrolment on Maori Electoral Roll.’ This also applies to people who have appeared correctly on previous rolls.

People who do not fill in such a form, will not have their names printed on the new roll and cannot vote this year.

This type of thing does not happen with every election, but it has to be done from time to time when the whole of the electoral record needs overhauling. To bring the entire roll up to date, the law requires all electors, both Maori and pakeha, to make a fresh application.

Every Maori home has been sent forms, but more can be had from any Post Office or from any Registrar of Electors. The forms are in both English and Maori.
