Enrol to vote - elections 2022


Local body elections are your chance to have your say on what's important to you, your whanau and your community.

The people elected get to make decisions about your daily life and the future of your town and community. They set rates, oversee town planning, and make decisions on rubbish collection, roads, parks and libraries. 

If you're an enrolled voter in the Waikato district, you'll get a voting information back in the mail from Friday 16 September 2022.

At this point in time, we are unable to run our local elections online.

You will have until 12 noon on Saturday 8 October 2022 to vote.
