MEDIA RELEASE (For Immediate Release)
Voting papers for a by-election in Waitakere City are being sent to registered electors from today (March 31).

The by-election was forced through the resignation of Councillor Pat Booth (due to ill-health).
Nominations have been received from five candidates. They are:
- Carl Harding
- June Kearney
- Christine Shepherd
- Gary Stewart
- Denise Yates
A brief profile of each candidate is included with the voting papers.
Completed papers must be posted back, and received by the returning officer, by no later than noon on Friday, April 21. Completed voting forms can also be hand-delivered to the Civic Centre at 6 Waipareira Ave, Henderson.
Eligible voters who are not on the electoral roll can also place a special vote at the Civic Centre.
