Māori enrolment 

Voters of Māori descent can choose to be on the general roll or the Māori roll. The roll they choose decides which electorate and local council voting area they will vote in.

The following table shows the number of electors of Māori descent on the Māori roll and the general roll broken down by electorate and by age. The estimated eligible population is calculated for general electorates and includes those on the general and Māori rolls, because of the geographic overlap of general and Māori electorates.

The Māori enrolment figures will be updated quarterly.
