Voter enrolment rates are declining in almost every electorate in New Zealand, despite a general election being less than two months away.

As we reported last month about 367,000 eligible voters are yet to enrol to vote.

Since that report, the percentage of eligible voters enrolled to vote has fallen in all but six electorates, according to the latest figures from the Electoral Commission - albeit by less than one per cent in most cases.

The decline is caused by people being removed from the roll when recently sent enrolment packs are returned to the Electoral Commission as undeliverable.
