The final tally for advance voting is 717,579. This is somewhat larger than 334,558 in 2011 and 270,427 in 2008. That is pretty impressive.

The electoral commission has a schedule published for tonight and later for the count.

Welcome to the New Zealand election results website, managed by the Electoral Commission.
Today is Election Day for the 2014 General Election. The preliminary election results will become available here progressively from 7.00pm.Click here to find out more about voting in the 2014 General Election.
Targets for release of the preliminary election results are:

by 8.30pm all advance vote results
by 10.00pm results from 50% of voting places
by 11.30pm results from 100% of voting places
The Electoral Commission aims to have the official results for the 2014 General Election published here by 2.00pm on Saturday 4 October.

And for nice look of the advance voting.

Damn that was a fast rise. I can see this being a permanent part of future elections. But it would require some changes to electoral legislation. Maybe by getting rid of the election changing but useless polls?

    Maybe no polls released from the weekend before the election day. This is when only 150,000 had voted. So we have nearly 600,000 in the last week alone.

    Perhaps the media could use the money they save from the last polls to run US style exit polls, which give very usefull information, as they can look at past voting, ethnicity, age etc etc.
