Electoral - places and streets
Toitū Te Whenua publishes the Index to Places and Streets for electoral purposes. The index is used by electoral returning officers to help register special votes in the correct electorate on election day. Our most recent version of the index was last updated in March 2023.
The Index to Places and Streets can be bought in hard-copy from the Electoral Commission’s Enrolment Services team.
