Voting in the 2016 Local Elections

While it's our role to get people enrolled and ready to vote, we do not run the local elections themselves. Each council runs its own election with guidance from the Department of Internal Affairs. 

The Department of Internal Affairs oversees this work. You can click here to go to their website to find out more about the 2016 local elections. 

If you have questions about voting in your local election, you will need to contact your council direct. Councils and their contact details are online at
