We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.

Loss of one of our fur babies....

Kirsty Neighbourly Lead from Taupo Central

To whomever it was in Hilltop that clipped our gorgeous silver tabby, Max with their car, I'd like to let you know that we had to put him down yesterday. His hip was broken right up near his spine. Due to his age, the vet couldn't operate. He may well have been on the road, but we were outside most of the day and heard no screech of brakes or any other indication you had tried NOT to hit him. He couldn't get out of your way quickly enough - it would be like asking an 84 year old to run a 100m sprint. Please, please slow down in streets where there are pets and children about. We miss him terribly, and you have no idea of the cost and pain you have inflicted on a superannuitant and the rest of the household.
