Guide to Enrolling Online :
Enrolling to vote is easy using our online services, and can be done in one of two ways:

Complete form online, sign and return :
Use this option if you want to sign and return a form or don’t have a verified RealMe® account.

** Fill out the online enrolment form with your personal details. You can choose to receive your completed form via download, email, or in the post.
** Check and sign the form.
** Return your enrolment form by scanning and uploading to our website OR by Freepost in the mail.

Note: When enrolling you can choose to register for electronic updates to your enrolment details.

Use your verified RealMe® account :
If you have a verified RealMe account you can complete the enrolment process online.
** Choose ‘Prove my identity’ with RealMe, and log into your account.
** Complete the enrolment form, and check your details are correct.
** Submit your enrolment – the Electoral Commission will send you written confirmation of your enrolment in the post.

What is RealMe? :
RealMe® is a secure login service, with a particular focus on privacy, backed by the New Zealand Government and New Zealand Post, that allows individuals to electronically transact with a number of government agencies and companies.

There are two types of RealMe services :
** A RealMe login is a single username and password which can be used when you register for electronic updates to your enrolment details.

** A verified RealMe account works in the same way as a RealMe login, however, it has the added benefit that you are able to prove who you are online and can be used to enrol and to update your enrolment details online.

RealMe verification steps :
Setting up a verified RealMe account involves completing the following steps :
** Create a RealMe login or use your existing RealMe account login.

** Verify your identity. You’ll need either your passport, or citizenship certificate, or birth or immigration details handy to apply for RealMe.

** Visit a participating PostShop. RealMe have to match your identity to a real person – you’ll need to show up and have your photo taken. Your details will be checked and verified and RealMe will get back to you within five working days.

If you do not wish to use RealMe, view other options to enrol or to update your enrolment details.
