Keep an eye out for your voting papers

Published: 23-Sep-2019

Keep an eye out for voting papers in your mailbox this week – as voting is now open.

Voting papers were mailed to registered voters from Saturday 20 September. All papers are expected to be delivered by Wednesday 25 September.

Voting papers must be received by the council before midday on Election Day, 12 October 2019. There will be ballot boxes at the Council offices and at service centres.

As well as council elections, voting packs will include voting papers for the Regional Council and District Health Board elections. Voting papers will contain clear instructions on how to vote.

Although electoral rolls have now closed, people can still enrol to vote. However, they will need to request special voting papers.

People who have not received their voting papers, or want to request special voting papers, should contact Waimakariri’s Electoral Officer, on 0800 666 941 or

Candidate profiles and other election information is available on our elections page.
