As an organisation you may have found that it isn’t always easy to effectively connect with people and give everyone the chance to have their say.
Election Services can give you the edge you need to successfully engage with your constituents, through three key offerings:
Polls & Referenda
Find out what your constituents think
We offer a service of conducting polls and referenda for organisations that require an independent and impartial electoral service. Organisations we have worked with in the past include local authorities, iwi, trust boards, unions, educational facilities, corporations and associations.
Represent your constituents faithfully
Our experience in electoral legislation and in the range of local factors which must guide the process means we are well suited to offering expert input. Our independence also means that we can bring an unbiased ‘outside view’ of your area and organisation, and our connections within the industry will help to ensure a smooth process. See our representation review page for more details.
Ensure impartial decisions
If your organisation has a potentially contentious issue to discuss, we have on numerous occasions impartially chaired meetings to ensure decisions are reached smoothly and fairly. If you require this service, please get in touch.
If your organisation represents a group of constituents, members or stakeholders, you’ll appreciate the importance of properly consulting with them to communicate your message and get feedback on your decisions and activities.

Polls & Referenda
A successful and secure poll or referenda gives you a direct line to what your constituents want. Election Services will ensure the security and validity of an elector’s vote, giving you the most accurate result possible.
We offer a service of conducting polls and referenda for organisations that require an independent and impartial electoral service.
This can include the following polls:
Referenda and polls we have run for local authorities include:
Electoral system polls;
Maori representation polls;
Business improvement district polls; and
Polls on community issues such as street closures, rate increases, water fluoridation, dam closures and building or funding of community assets (to name a few).
If you have an up-and-coming referenda or poll, we can run it efficiently, cost effectively and with accurate results.
Referenda and polls we have run for Iwi include:
Deed of Trust changes
Selling/purchase of assets
We have extensive experience working with Iwi. Our solutions are innovative and will be tailored to your specific situation and requirements. We use forward-thinking technology and resources to ensure that you’re keeping up to date with how your constituents prefer to communicate.
If your referenda or poll is not included in the above lists, chances are we can run it for you too. With over 28 years in the business, there's little we don't have direct experience with, and we're always excited for a new challenge.
