Showing All electorate statistics by Māori/Non-Māori descent

These statistics show how many people voted in the 2020 General Election, by age and Māori or non-Māori descent.

The total numbers of voters in this report are slightly lower than in the official results because of disallowed votes, dual votes and clerical errors made in marking the master roll.
