Ngaa Pootitanga

Our next local election is on Saturday 8 October 2022.

Voting ensures you have a say on what’s important to you, your whānau, your hāpu, your town, your rohe and your community. The question you need to ask yourself is – Are they the best person to develop and nurture your community? If you feel your voice isn’t heard on issues that matter – it’s time to speak up!

The elections are held every three years by postal vote.

If you are an enrolled voter, you'll get a voting information pack in the mail. Check or update your postal address to make sure you receive your voting papers.

Voting papers will be sent to all eligible voters from Friday 16 September 2022 and voting will close at 12 noon on 8 October 2022.
