The Electoral Commission made a small mistake on voting papers in Waikato on October 6.

The mistake was a formatting error, of which the white circle for people to place a tick by Vision New Zealand’s name was missing.

The voting papers were reprinted from the Port Waikato electorate after the mistake was discovered by Electoral Commission staff at around midday on Monday.

Voting was continued using voting papers with the correct format on the same day. Additional ballot papers were reprinted to ensure sufficient supplies were in place.
