Why you should vote in the by-election

​Local boards are more involved in the community than any other level of government in New Zealand. They make decisions on playgrounds, sporting facilities and help build strong communities.

Your local board will:

  • develop and adopt local board plans
  • engage with community
  • propose bylaws and local targeted rates.

They have a say in delivering services like libraries, rubbish collection, regional and local parks, community centres, public events, water distribution and public transport.

By voting in this by-election you make your voice heard.

You also get a chance to choose who will represent you on the local board and make decisions on your behalf.
