News and information – Friday Five: Things to do over the long weekend in Wellington

1. Check your mail for voting papers

If you were enrolled to vote in the local body elections by August 12, then you should have received your voting papers in your mail box by Thursday September 22.

If you haven’t got them, or have lost or damaged your voting forms, then you can still do a special vote!

If you’ve got them, go vote.

2. Read up about candidates for the local elections

Why not go through the list of candidates nominated to stand in the 2022 Wellington City Council elections? You can find out more on our candidate information page.

Then, go vote.

3. Find out places to drop off your vote

Voting papers (for any local council) can be returned via the following methods:

  • By NZ Post: If you are using a post box, it is recommended that you post your vote by October 4 to ensure it is received before the cut-off date.
  • To a ballot box: There are over 50 Wellington City Council-branded ballot boxes where you can drop off your voting papers across Wellington. Ballot boxes are provided at every Wellington supermarket and Council library, as well as several other locations. Votes can be delivered to ballot boxes up to 12 noon on Saturday 8 October.
  • To a Wellington City Council voting hub: You can also be issued a special vote at these locations. If you need to cast a special vote, find out more on our how to vote page.

Then, go vote.
