2022 Local Elections

Our vision is for Aotearoa to be the most active and inclusive local democracy in the world.

Healthy democracy depends on New Zealanders voting this October in the 2022 local authority elections. It also depends on a range of people standing for election to represent the diversity of Aotearoa.

Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) and Taituarā’s joint VOTE 2022 campaign will be a national conversation about diversity and a place for everyone, supporting candidates as they stand and improving voter turn-out in local authority elections. 

It’s a time of immense uncertainty but also opportunity - so we’re also encouraging kiwis to get out there and vote on the issues that are important to them, their whanāu, communities and business both, locally and nationally as we look towards a resilient and innovative future.
