2019 Local Elections

We want more Kiwis to get involved.

Healthy democracy depends on New Zealanders voting this October in the 2019 local authority elections.

During the next ten months, we'll be having a conversation with Kiwis around what’s important to them, nationally and locally.

Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) and the New Zealand Society of Local Government Managers (SOLGM) joint VOTE 2019 campaign will be about listening and engaging on the issues that matter to locals that will make New Zealand a better place to live, work and play.

It’s about aligning our communities’ views with those of candidates, and supporting candidates as they stand.

Finally, it’s about people having their say at the October elections and voting for the issues that they care about for their family, business and community.
