How to vote Campbell Barry for Mayor
Thousands of people across the Hutt are voting at this election. With the election on a knife-edge, make sure you're a voter too — it could be your vote that makes the difference. Have you voted yet?
I've already voted
You’re awesome, thank you for being a voter! Encourage your friends and family to vote too.
I've got my forms, but I haven't voted yet.
It’s now too late to post your voting papers, but you can still be a voter by dropping them down to your local library or the Wellington Train Station before 12pm, Saturday 12 October.
I haven't received my voting papers
You can still vote, and it’s really easy. You don’t even need ID! All you need to do is pop down to any of the below locations during working hours, or between 9am - 12pm on October 12th.
- Walter Nash Centre
- Wainuiomata Library
- Hutt City Council (30 Laings Road).
How to vote
- If you are a registered voter, you should have received your voting packs in the mail.
- Vote for your preferred candidates by following the instructions in your voting pack, and pop them in the envelope provided.
- Return by Saturday 12 October by dropping them into your local library, the Council Administration Building, or the ballot box at Wellington Railway Station.
What am I voting for?
For the first time since Hutt City Council was formed in 1989, the city will have a mixed representation model this election. This means you will vote for:
- A Mayor
- A ward Councillor for your area
- 6 'at large' Councillors (you will be able to use up to 6 ticks)
- Representatives for the Greater Wellington Regional Council, Hutt Valley District Health Board and the Hutt Mana Charitable Trust
If you live in Petone, Wainuiomata and Eastbourne you will also be able to vote to elect members to their local Community Board.
Remember, you don't have to cast a vote for every position. If you only want to vote in the mayoral race, you can do that. If you only want to vote for two or three 'at large' Councillors, you can do that too
Voter packs mailed to electors. Voting opens.
Voting papers need to be in the post.
