Hawke's Bay Regional Council - media statement

18 June 2014

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council functions as an effective governance body for the whole of the region.

On most issues all Councillors are in agreement, but on a few issues there are divergent and strongly held views.

We respect the right of different views to be held as this encourages healthy debate for our region.

We are in agreement that the matters that unite us are greater than those that divide us.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
