Voting is not just a right, it’s an opportunity to have your say on what’s important to you, your whanau and your community. This October you will have the opportunity to have your say on who represents your community and the Waikato district
for the next three years.
You will vote for:
- Waikato District Mayor (the Mayor is elected on a district-wide vote)
- Waikato District Councillors (13 Councillors are elected to represent 10 Wards, or areas, in our District)
- Community Board members (Community Boards in Huntly, Ngaruawahia, Onewhero-Tuakau, Taupiri and Raglan look after local interests and provide a link between the community and the Council)
In addition to voting for a Mayor, Councillors and Community Board members, Waikato District electors also voted for:
- Waikato Regional Council members
- Waikato District Health Board members
- Counties Manukau District Health Board members
- Te Kauwhata Licensing Trust member
