Why do you think people aren't voting for mayors and councillors?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Last time Kiwis chose local governments, Waikato councils had the lowest four voter turnout figures.
They were in Matamata-Piako District (24.1 per cent), Ōtorohanga District (25.1 per cent), Waikato District (30.6 per cent), and Hamilton City (33.6 per cent).
Suggested reasons include uncontested races, apathy, and people not knowing how to vote or feeling disconnected from their council.

What do you think the reasons are?

Do you know Hamilton is getting a drug court?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Auckland and Waitakere already have the courts, now Justice Minister Andrew Little has announced one for Hamilton.

"It's not like any court you have ever experienced before," Alcohol and Drug Community Support Trust director Stephen King has previously said. "It's almost like a quasi therapy, but it does have the power of the district court judge there."
