Applications to register substitute political party logos

Jul 10, 2020 | News

The Electoral Commission is considering applications to register substitute political party logos for the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party and NZ Outdoors Party.

The applications have been made under Part 4 of the Electoral Act 1993.

Party: Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party
Applicant: Irinka Britnell, Party Secretary

Party: NZ Outdoors Party
Applicant: Jenn Haakma, Party Secretary 

Registration of a substitute logo is needed for the logo to appear on a voting paper. 

Registration of a party logo may be refused if the logo is indecent, offensive, likely to cause confusion or mislead electors, or contains any reference to a title or honour or similar form of identification or infringes an intellectual property right.

Anyone who wishes to comment on the logos may do so in writing to the Electoral Commission at:

The deadline for comments is 5pm, 24 July 2020.

More information on the party logo registration process can be found in the Commission’s Party Registration Handbook available online here or email or phone 04 495 0030 9am–5pm Monday to Friday.
