BUSY TIME: Postie Judy Brookhuis sorts 2014 general election update campaign packs at the Invercargill Mail Centre.

The electoral commission has launched its campaign to make sure all eligible New Zealanders are ready to take part in the 2014 general election on September 20.

More than 3 million enrolled voters will be sent an enrolment update pack, including about 35,000 to be sorted at the Invercargill Mail Centre.

The packs give people the opportunity to check their details are correct and make any changes.

Invercargill Mail Centre delivery leader Terry Feely said it would be one of the biggest mailouts of the year for the centre.

Invercargill registrar of electors Carol Baxter said she expected thousands of returned packs with updated details.

The update campaign will run for the next seven weeks.

People who do not receive their pack by Friday will need to complete a new enrolment form.
