If people do not receive their voting documents by Wednesday 22 September, they should contact their local council electoral office to make a special vote.

Voting closes at noon on 9 October. As it will be a postal vote, it is recommended that completed voting documents are posted back by 7 October to ensure they arrive in time.

Local authority elections are residents’ and ratepayers’ opportunity to choose the city or district’s mayor and councillors as well as local community board members, Auckland Regional councillors and District Health Board and Licensing Trust representatives.
