Where to vote on campus in the General Election

The General Election and referendums are just around the corner. This year you can vote from Saturday 3 October, right through until 7pm Election Day, Saturday 17 October. You need to be enrolled to vote and you can enrol right up to and on election day – you can do it online at www.vote.nz. People enrolling now won’t receive an EasyVote card in the mail, but you can still vote without one.

This year, you can vote on campus at Haere-roa and in the Undercroft. 

Vote in Haere-roa on:

Mon 5 – Wed 7 Oct         10am-4pm 

Mon 12 – Thu 15 Oct      10am-4pm 

Fri 16 Oct                              10am-3pm 

Vote in the Undercroft on: 

Mon 5 Oct -Sat 10 Oct                    11am – 5pm

Mon 12 Oct – Thu 15 Oct              11am – 5pm

Fri 16 Oct                                                11am – 3pm

When you go to vote, you’ll be given a voting paper for the election and voting paper for the referendums. On your election voting paper, place a tick next to the party you support, and a tick by the name of the person you want to represent your local area. You can also vote in the two referendums – the End of Life Choice referendum and the cannibis legalisation and control referendum. You can find more information at www.referendums.govt.nz.

Special Considerations for students

Sometimes unforeseen circumstances can get in the way of studies. If students are struggling to finish their assessments, there is support here at UC:  

  • If students find their workload challenging, they can apply for an extension. Students have been advised to speak to their course coordinator about this.
  • If students miss assessments, or are unable to complete work to the best of their ability, please encourage them to apply for a Special Consideration.

If a student requests an extension and the course coordinator is willing to grant this then they do not need to apply for a Special Consideration.

Please encourage students to make the most of this support. Find out more here>

Students can also access other UC support services if they need help or someone to talk to:
