Make sure you have your say in the issues facing the Wellington Region and your local communities by voting in the 2022 local elections.
Democracy is at its best when the voices of people are heard.
There is no level of government in Aotearoa New Zealand that impacts your day to day life as much as local government. Council makes decisions that have an impact on your and your community's every day life.
Voting in the local elections is important if you want to have your say on what matters to you. We deliver many services to our communities across the Wellington Region.
The people you vote for will make decisions that makes the Wellington Region a great place to live.
Local elections are held every three years. Voting opens in this local body election on 16 September and closes at 12noon on 8 October 2022.
You can vote if you are enrolled as a voter with the Electoral Commission. Check your details at vote.nz.
