Register of political parties

If a political party wants to contest the party vote in an election, it must register with us. We keep a register of these parties and make it available to the public.

The register shows each party’s:

  • name
  • abbreviated name
  • component parties, if it has any
  • registration date
  • registration date of current logo
  • deadline for filing financial statements and whether these must be audited
  • secretary and their contact information
  • dates of changes to their rules.

You can download the register at the bottom of this page, or visit us and read the register in person:

Electoral Commission 
34-42 Manners St 
Wellington
Open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday
