There's not much time left for Justin Lester to make a call on whether to ask for a recount, or not.
The Local Electoral Act 2001 gives a window of only three days following the official results to ask for a recount.
That gives Lester until Friday to get to the District Court.
Even though it will likely cost ratepayers, should there be a recount?

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.

Hi to all
Do anyone have spare decoration stuff for birthday party decoration like balloons, balloon gas inflator or anything else to give way?
Hi Neighbourly - we're looking for a first-home buyer to talk about why it was their goal to buy a house and the reasons behind it (need to be willing to be pictured with it). We're also looking for a few people 50 years or older to talk about how important owning their own home is to their retirement goals
