You may like to vote in this election. Voting is a way to have your say on what happens in your local community. This
information is designed to help you. It notes who you can contact to enrol, and ways you might qualify to vote.
There are two types of electors...
If you are registered to vote on the electoral roll, you are automatically enrolled to vote in local authority elections. You will receive a voting document so that you can vote by post.
You may also be eligible to enrol as a non-resident ratepayer elector in a council district if both of these apply:
- you are on the district valuation roll and pay rates in the council district
- the address where you are registered as a Parliamentary elector is outside that council district.
Your eligibility to enrol or be nominated as a ratepayer elector may also depend on your individual circumstances as determined by criteria in the Local Electoral Act 2001 and its regulations.
