On 13 September, the panel released a consultation document and invited submissions on it. It outlines our current electoral law and practice and is split into four parts to make it easier to navigate..
This stage of consultation is now closed. The Panel is now considering what it has heard and developing recommendations on what could change. In May of next year, the Panel will release its draft recommendations and invite feedback from you.
The Consultation Document is translated into te reo Māori and the Summary Document is translated into eight languages:
The Consultation Document and Summary are available in the following alternate formats: New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL), large print (18pt), Easy Read, Braille, and Audiobook (DAISY).
Easy Read uses words and pictures to present information in a way that's easier to understand for some people.
Braille Ready Files (BRF) can be read on Braille compatible devices and printed by Braille printers.
Daisy is a digital talking book format for people who are blind or have a print disability; it provides navigation tools that other audio formats do not.
