How to vote in the Local Body Elections

Emma from St Albans

How to vote - The elections are held by postal vote. If you’re enrolled to vote, your voting papers will be delivered by New Zealand Post from Friday 20 September.

The papers include your voting form, a candidate booklet and a prepaid return envelope.

Read the instructions, fill out the voting paper with your choices, put it in the Freepost envelope provided and put it in the mail.

To make sure your completed vote is received before voting closes, post it no later than 5pm on Tuesday 8 October.

You can also deliver your vote by hand. Completed voting papers can be returned to the Christchurch City Council Civic Offices at 53 Hereford Street, or any open Council library or service centre, before noon on Saturday 12 October.

Anyone who is not able to complete a postal vote independently due to disability is invited to contact the Electoral Officer. The candidate profile booklet can be provided in larger text on request.

It’s not too late to enrol to vote!
