Psychiatric reports have been ordered on a woman charged with arson after a fire at the Electoral Commission office in Wellington in July.

The 28-year-old's name was suppressed by Wellington District Court judge Barbara Morris until the reports are before the court when she reappears in October.

She was charged with arson, with causing a computer system to fail, and using Electoral Commission documents.

Police allege the fire was started in an unused kitchen area on the third floor of Sovereign House in Manners St.
