Your vote helps the City run

It is important that you vote in the Auckland Council Elections.

Your vote helps ensure that the people who represent you are people who share your values and can contribute to the way you would like our City to work.

The Auckland Council Elections decide who will be our Mayor, who will make up the governing body, and who sits on our local boards.

The Mayor is the leader of the governing body, which is made up of 20 Councillors. They focus on the big issues that affect all of Auckland. They set budgets, decide on rates, and develop regional plans and policies.

Each of the 21 Local Boards has five to nine members who represent our communities. Their responsibilities include providing local services and activities such as parks, arts, and culture, and community events.

You can find out what each of the people standing for these positions believes at www.voteauckland.co.nz

If you are a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident who has lived in New Zealand for more than one year continuously, you should ensure that you are enrolled to vote by visiting www.elections.org.nz

If you registered your name before August 16, 2013, voting forms will be posted to you. You can then fill the forms and post it in the pre-paid envelope provided by October 9, 2013.

If you registered your name after August 16, 2013, you should collect your voting forms in person.
