With only a few weeks to go before the rolls close for printing, more than 120,000 18 to 24 year olds and 57,000 people aged 25 to 29 still need to enrol,'' says Mur- ray Wicks, national manager of the Electoral Enrolment Centre. In the Rimutaka electorate this is about 1500 people aged 18 to 24 and more than 200 aged 25 to 29. By not enrolling or taking part they're putting decisions about their future into the hands of others.'' People aged 18 and over are required by law to enrol if they are a New Zealand citizen, or if they have permanent residency and have lived in the country for one year at some point. It is not com- pulsory to vote but it is compul- sory to enrol. We are urging young people to get enrolled as soon as possible to ensure they receive an EasyVote pack closer to election day, which will give them all the information they need to vote in the general election and referendum,'' says Mr Wicks. Electoral staff are hard at work in communities nationwide, work- ing to improve the statistics and get under-30s enrolled. Field workers will be at community events, shopping centres, street corners and even going door to door over the next few weeks making it easy for people to get enrolled. Don't miss out. Enrolling is easy. You can even do it via our Facebook page facebook.com/ IVoteNZ ,'' Mr Hicks says. People can get an enrolment form by Freetexting their name and address to 3676, going online to elections.org.nz, calling 0800 36 76 56 or picking one up from a PostShop. Collaboration spells bigger better projects for Rotary Rotary 9940 district governor Bob Smith and his wife Margaret have visited the Heretaunga Rotary Club as part of his district tour. Mr Smith shared his thoughts and goals for the 2011-2012 Rotary year. He played a video of the inaug- ural speech of Rotary Inter- national president Kalyan Baner- jee asking Rotarians to find a harmony between their inner self and their outer self and to develop their strengths. He said humanity is in a Rotarian's DNA and they should remember that everyone in this world has similar dreams, hopes and problems. He believed there were three focus areas -- family, neighbour- hood and community. Mr Smith said Rotarians needed to create a greater aware- ness of Rotary within younger generations. He encouraged clubs to collabor- ate with each other and with other clubs across the district, or with non-Rotarian organisations to achieve bigger, better, bolder projects within communities. A past district governor, Eliza- beth Usovicz, once said When a positive spirit comes alive in our clubs, we inspire our communities. And when our communities are inspired by our service and pres- ence, we inspire new members. It's a powerful cycle.'' Like many service organis- ations, Rotary struggles to retain membership and, while some new clubs have been started, there has not been an overall increase in club memberships for some time. Mr Smith suggested Rotary should embrace change and recog- nise the importance of attracting more women and more ethnic minority groups and younger people to diversify its memberships. The club can be contacted through president Colin Charles 526 8220 or for membership, Paul Symmans, 971 6277.
