Candidate nomination period now open

My Post 1

It’s time to step forward if you’re thinking about standing for Council, with the official candidate nomination period for local body elections opening 19 July.

You need to be enrolled to vote and nominated by two electors in the ward you intend to stand for. If you are standing as a mayoral candidate, the two electors can be from any of the Gisborne District Council wards.

We have two more public candidate information evenings in rural communities:


25 July, 6 – 7.30pm –

Ormond School, 45 Whitmore Road

Tokomaru Bay

Tuesday 30 July, 6 – 7.30pm

The Haven, Tokomaru St

The candidate nomination period runs from 19 July to 12pm, Friday 16 August.

Here's more information and the candidate information booklet
