New Zealanders have only a few days left to practice their democratic right and have their say on who their leaders will be by voting in the current local authority elections.
Elected representatives oversee a huge range of services, worth millions of dollars, which affect you and your family daily – from the pavements you walk on, to the roads you drive on and the recreation grounds where you cheer on your kids.
People who have not received their voting papers can still vote by casting a special vote but need to contact the Deputy Electoral Officer John Moran, on 07 878 0800, or visit WDC, Queen Street Te Kuiti between the opening hours of 8am - 5pm.
