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.

Thank you to everybody that came out yesterday, and attended and supported the inaugural Helensville Lions Community Spring Fair- the feedback was wonderful, with all asking when the next one will be!
We hope to run another one in December, probably the second Saturday.
We had so many positive comments, and a whole range of traders and sellers and community groups there. We sold out of sausages on the BBQ trailer, and made heaps of book sales. Kaipara College supported us by providing some live music, and our own Retts Van Dam entertained us with a drum extravaganza, with maximum audience participation!
We've got our November Book Fair coming up next, watch this space!
