Local Government Elections 2022

Nominations are now open for candidates to stand for Whanganui District Council and the Whanganui Rural Community Board.

Now is also the time for everyone to make sure they’re enrolled at the correct address so they can have their say when voting opens in September.

The elections team at Whanganui District Council has put together some handy resources that you can use to help spread the word about standing for council and enrolling to vote on social media and websites. You can download social media tiles, posters, an info sheet and our latest media release here.

Resources will continue to be added to this page, so check back regularly.

Whanganui District Council encourage anyone thinking of standing for Council this year to check out the votewhanganui.nz website for more information.

You can also pop into the elections centre at Community House on Ridgway Street, Whanganui between 10am-2pm on weekdays and have a chat to a member of the team, or find them at the Whanganui River Markets or Trafalgar Square on Saturday mornings.
