Politicians from opposing sides want special votes to be counted more quickly. 

Special votes and the final election result will be released in nine days, giving the final makeup of Parliament. 

National and ACT can govern alone on current numbers, but those may change once November 3rd comes around. 

Labour's Megan Woods told Mike Hosking that she doesn't see how allowing people to enrol on the day adds a week to counting specials. 

National's Mark Mitchell agrees. 

He said the Justice Committee will conduct an electoral review.
