Final results are now available to view below. These results include special votes.
Final election results released last night confirm that Jacqui Church has been elected as Mayor of the Waikato district. Read the full media release here.
Blank and informal votes
A blank vote means that a voter has not voted for any candidates in a particular election (e.g. mayor, ward councillor etc.).
An informal vote is when:
- the electoral officer has reason to believe a voting document is not an official voting document
- the voter has voted for more candidates than there are positions available (e.g. voted for four candidates where there are only three positions)
- the voter’s intention is not clear (i.e. the vote doesn't clearly show who the voter wanted to vote for).
These results in these PDF documents do not include unopposed candidates for Western Districts General Ward, Tuakau Community Board and Rural & Port Waikato Community Board.

The by-election will take place in early 2023.
