CLOSE OF NOMINATIONS - The nomination period will be extended to 1 May 2020 meaning nominations will close on Friday 1 May at midday.

The returning officer acknowledges that with the current climate and the associated government restrictions (self-isolating, social distancing), it may be challenging for candidates to get nominators to complete and sign their nomination. If a candidate’s nominators reside outside of their bubble, separate nomination papers may be downloaded and submitted to the returning officer, provided all parts of the nomination are received before 12 noon, Friday 1 May 2020.

We will endeavour to keep you updated of progress.  Please stay safe and well.

Nga mihi. From the team at Election Services.
