Nominations for this year’s local elections closed at 12 noon today (Friday 16 August) and the confirmed list of candidates is now available on Hutt City Council’s website.
For the first time since Hutt City Council was formed in 1989, the city will have a mixed representation model this election. This means that residents will elect a Mayor, a ward Councillor for their area and six “at large” Councillors. Residents in Petone, Wainuiomata and Eastbourne will vote to elect members to their local Community Board.
Elections will also be held for Hutt Valley District Health Board, Hutt Mana Charitable Trust and the Greater Wellington Regional Council.
The voting period begins on 20 September and closes at midday on 12 October.
*No election is required for Councillor - Central Ward and Petone Community Board as the number of candidates equals the number of vacancies.
