Referendum information in accessible formats

At this year's General Election, the public will be asked to vote in 2 referendums, about recreational cannabis and the End of Life Choice Act 2019.

The Government is committed to ensuring referendum information is available to all voters.

Accessible resources will be available in formats including:

  • audio
  • braille
  • dyslexic-friendly
  • Easy Read
  • large print
  • New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL).

Information will also be available in several languages.

Referendum information will be posted to enrolled voters in July, as part of the Electoral Commission's enrolment update mailout. Accessible versions of this information are being developed with technical input from a variety of disabled people's organisations and experts.

Resources will be published to this website and made available via a range of accessible channels.
