Local elections 2019 voting packs are in the post

Voting packs have been posted to registered electors and should arrive in mailboxes by 25 September.

You have until noon on 12 October to get your votes in for Mayor, Councillors, Community Board members and for the Coromandel representative on the Waikato Regional Council.

The voting pack contains the profiles of each candidate plus the ballot paper and a postage-paid envelope.

You can also see the candidate profiles on our website at tcdc.govt.nz/nominations.

Please note, David Foreman has unofficially withdrawn his nomination for the Coromandel-Colville Community Board but will still appear on your voting papers.

If you’re posting your vote, get it in the mail by 8 October otherwise it may not reach our electoral office by the noon 12 October deadline in order to be counted. After 8 October, you can hand deliver your vote to any of our four Council offices.

If you don’t receive your voting pack, or if you’re eligible to vote but haven’t registered, you’ll need to get a special vote. Call into one of our Council offices to do this, or phone our electoral office on 0800 922 822.

Remember, if you own a property in the Coromandel, but don’t live here, you can probably still vote here. If you’re not already registered on the Ratepayer Electoral Roll you’ll need to apply for a special vote. Contact our electoral office on 0800 922 822.

Special votes can be posted to electors but completed votes must still be returned by noon on 12 October.
