Possible record low for voter turnout as 12pm deadline looms

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Only 31 per cent of people in New Zealand's biggest city have voted in the Local Body Elections, with polls set to close at midday.

As of Saturday morning, Auckland voter turnout was sitting at 31.48 per cent, which is 3.7 per cent lower than in 2016 and 1.7 per cent below 2013, which had the lowest ever turnout for an Auckland Council election.

Usually the last day of voting will add between two and three per cent, meaning this years election could fall short of the 2013 low of 35.2 per cent.

Not as daft as it may look๐Ÿš™๐Ÿš™

Fiona from Henderson

I can see it now ... a row of dead electric cars on the roadside after making the decision to do a road trip.
Along comes a petrol fueled vehicle with the means to bring to live the electric cars.
Silly? I think not๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

Swimming warnings at Auckland beaches

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.

The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.

It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
