Electoral Commission Enrolments Manager Murray Wicks is responsible for all voting age people in Aotearoa.
It is for him and his colleagues to ensure that everything that is to be done is in place to enrol and/or track down voters and be ready to vote in all Aotearoa elections.
And one those elections will be the Ikaroa Rawhiti Electorate, vacated after the death of Parekura Horomia, but that will take place in due course.
Another aspect on the list of dos for Murrary Wicks is making sure voters understand the criteria for voters to choose which roll to enrol either the general roll or the Maori roll.
Murray Wicks said one of the assumptions for most people is that they have to be on a specific roll to make a party vote but it a party vote can be made from either roll.
Ka riro ma Murray Wicks Kaiwhakahaere Whakauru o Te Kaitiaki Take Kowhiri hei whakananao i nga mahinga e hangai ana ki te iwi katoa o Aotearoa e pakeke ana i te tekau ma waru tau neke atu. Ara mana me ana kaimahi e whaiwhai ana i nga tangata e ahei ana ki te whai poti i nga kowhiringa katoa o Aotearoa. Ara hoki tetahi e taka mai ana ko te piki turanga a tetahi tangata i te rohe poti o Te Ikaroa Rawhiti na te hingatanga o Parekura Horomia, engari taiho ake tenei rohe poti mo muri atu. Tetahi take tino nui ma Murray Wicks ratau ko ana hoa pouarahi poti ko te whakarite o nga tangata ki runga i te potinga maori me te potinga auraki.
