Local Elections 2022

Our next local election is on Saturday 8 October 2022.

The elections are held every three years by postal vote.

If you are an enrolled voter, you'll get a voting information pack in the mail. Check or update your postal address to make sure you receive your voting papers.

If you own property in the Waitomo District, but are not a resident, you are still eligible to vote as a ratepayer elector.
