Local government elections are held every 3 years when residents can vote for a regional councillor to represent them. The Hawke’s Bay region has five constituencies represented by Councillors, with representation determined by the Electoral Commission New Zealand and based on population.
Our local elections are held every three years and give you the chance to vote for the Regional Council and local council members.
The next local election will be held 8 October 2022.
If you are an enrolled voter, you'll get a voting information pack in the mail. Check or update your postal address on the Electoral Commission website to make sure you receive your voting papers, or check out our enrol page.
