Rolls close for print- ing on October 26 and over 120,000 18 to 24-year-olds and 57,000 people aged 25 to 29 still need to enrol,'' national manager of the electoral enrolment centre Mur- ray Wicks says. By not enrolling or taking part they're putting decisions about their future into the hands of others.'' People aged 18 and over are required by law to enrol if they are a New Zealand citizen, or if they have permanent residency and have lived in the country for one year at some point. It is not compulsory to vote but it is compulsory to enrol. We are urging young people to get enrolled to ensure they receive an EasyVote pack closer to election day, which will give them all the infor- mation they need to vote,'' Mr Wicks says. Electoral staff are hard at work in com- munities nationwide, working to improve the statistics and get under- 30s enrolled. Field workers will be at community events, shopping centres, street corners and even going door to door over the next few weeks making it easy for people to get enrolled. Enrolling is easy. You can do it via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/ IVoteNZ. People can get an enrolment form by freetexting their name and address to 3676, online at www.elections. org.nz, calling 0800-36- 76-56 or from any Post- Shop. Dog registration success Pound pups: Find your next best friend at the Far North District Council pound. The reduced rate for the registration of dogs has now closed and the Far North District Council says the drive was a suc- cess. Many members of the public took advantage of this two-month period and the registering of dogs within the district is on par with the pre- vious financial year,'' chief executive David Edmunds says. In his report to the council, Mr Edmunds says animal control staff are working to align the systems with those of other councils within New Zealand. Changes include improving sys- tem user functionality and streamlining our processes for internal and external customers.'' The re-homing of pound dogs has also been going well. Mr Edmunds says about 15 dogs a month are found new homes, which is an improvement on previous year's results. If you are interested in re-homing a pound dog, the registration cost is $35 and you can view assessed and available dogs at www.fndc.govt.nz.
