Democracy only succeeds if you get involved.
If you’re concerned about how community money is spent, you need to vote. If you want to ensure your vision, needs and priorities for the Waikato aren’t overlooked, you need to vote.
Who can vote
You can vote if you are enrolled on either the resident or ratepayer electoral roll for the Waikato region.
If you don’t know whether you are on the roll, take a look online. You can also view the roll at any post shop in the Waikato region.
Enrolling is simple
All parliamentary electors are automatically enrolled on the local authority residential electoral roll for the address where they live. If you want to enrol, or update your details, you can sort it online or over the phone. Call freephone 0800 36 76 56 or +64 9 909 4182. If you are calling from overseas, international calling rates may apply.
If you are on the parliamentary roll in one area and pay rates on a property in another area, you may be entitled to enrol to vote on the non-resident ratepayer roll. You can register as a non-resident ratepayer elector with the relevant local authority.
How to vote
Voting documents, including a reply paid envelope, will be sent to all eligible voters by post during September 2019. You may be asked to vote for more than one candidate depending on where you live.
Your voting document needs to be returned by 12pm on Saturday, 12 October 2019.
If you are posting it, please allow enough time for it to reach the electoral officer before the close of voting.
If you are worried about postal times, you can deliver your completed voting document to any district council office in the region or Hamilton City Council during normal business hours. The electoral system our council is using is First Past the Post (FPP).
