Auckland Council election progress results - local boards

Auckland Council election progress results - local boards
 
Progress results for the Auckland Council elections show there are changes in the composition of a number of local boards.
 
Four of the current local board chairs were not re-elected to their local boards. They are:

Richard Barter – Puketapapa Local Board

Michael Williams – Howick Local Board

Hine Joyce-Tahere – Papakura Local Board

Faye Storer – Waiheke Local Board
 
Three candidates – Chris Darby, Linda Cooper and John Watson - were elected to both the governing body and local board. These candidates must take their governing body seat, which means that the next highest polling candidate in the local board or local board subdivision is elected to the board.
 
All progress results are published at www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/elections
 
Preliminary results will also be posted online around 9pm this evening.
 
The final result will be declared on Thursday 17 October. This is the final media release from Auckland Council’s election team for the weekend.
