Would-be Auckland leaders keen to stand in the upcoming local elections can put their names forward as candidates from tomorrow.

Nominations for candidates open on Friday 15 July 2016 and close at noon on Friday 12 August 2016.

Aucklanders will choose from the pool of candidates standing in the elections – the people who will represent them for the next three years.

“If you’re interested in representing your community, and you think you can contribute useful skills and ideas, now is your chance to be involved in the decisions that make Auckland a great place to live, by standing for election,” says Auckland Council Electoral Officer Dale Ofsoske.

Elected roles for council include local boards, councillors and mayor, and voters will also get to choose district health board representatives, and licensing trust members in some areas.

Anyone over the age of 18 can stand for election as long as they are a New Zealand citizen and on the Parliamentary Electoral Roll.

Voting documents are posted out from Friday 16 September 2016 and must be received by the Electoral Officer by noon on Election Day, Saturday 8 October 2016.

Candidate nomination forms are available for download from tomorrow (Friday) here or from the following locations:
