Enrolment as a Ratepayer Elector
You may qualify to vote in Waipā District local body elections.
There are two types of electors:
Residential Electors: If you’re registered to vote on the electoral roll, you are automatically enrolled to vote in local authority elections. You will receive a voting document so that you can vote by post.
Ratepayer Electors: You may also be eligible to enrol as a non-resident ratepayers elector in a council district if both these apply:
- You are in the district valuation roll and pay rates in the council district
- The address where you are registered as a Parliamentary elector is outside that council district.
Your eligibility to enrol or be nominated as a ratepayer elector may also depend in your individual circumstances as determined by criteria in the Local Electoral Act 2001 and its regulations.
If you believe you meet the criteria to enrol as a ratepayer elector, please read and complete the below form.
