Youth leaders are welcoming a plan to allow voters to enrol and vote on election day next year.

But a Pacific Youth Leader doesn't think it will be enough to drastically improve youth voter turnout.

Josiah Tualamali'i from the Pacific Youth Leadership And Transformation Council says the new changes are a great first step.

But he told RNZ youth affairs reporter Katie Doyle it won't necessarily fix the disenfranchisement many young voters feel.
