Two candidates have been nominated to fill an extraordinary vacancy on the Raglan Community Board and an election has been called for Thursday 9 December 2021 by postal vote.
The candidates are Kiri Binnersley and Alan Vink.
Voting papers will be posted to all eligible electors from Wednesday 17 November. They must be returned by post, or hand-delivered during normal business hours provided COVID-19 restrictions allow, to the Raglan Office and Library, 7 Bow Street, Raglan, or to Waikato District Council’s Head Office, 15 Galileo Street, Ngaruawahia, by 12 noon on election day (Thursday 9 December 2021). The final results will be tallied under the ‘first past the post’ system and are expected to be available that afternoon.
The by-election was triggered by the death of the Board’s deputy chair, Bob MacLeod, in August.
