The Electoral Enrolment Centre says it is satisfied with the current number of people enrolled to vote in the upcoming election.

Nearly 250,000 people still have not registered to vote on 8 November.

The centre's national manager Murray Wicks says the education campaign has been highly visible and successful, and if someone wants to vote enrolling could not be easier.

Mr Wicks says more than 92% of people are already registered and New Zealand ranks amongst the highest in the world for enrollment levels.

Mr Wicks says in the 2005 election more than 16,000 votes did not count, because the voter was not enrolled.
