General Election Calling

General Election Calling (Northern)

Can we count on you to stand up with your community and vote on Saturday October 14th?

I’m so glad to hear that. Just to confirm, are you registered to vote? You can register online or register in person at a voting site in your area. If need be, you can also register on election day as well.

Early voting starts on Monday, October 2nd and runs until election day on Saturday, October 14th. Have you thought about when you plan to vote? Ok, great.

We are asking all E tū members to make a commitment to vote by signing our E tū election pledge. (propose filling out form for the member online instead of directing them to the website, or if need be, direct the member to our website by emailing a link and attachment of the pledge to them.) https://etu.nz/pledge2023
