Candidate nomination period now open
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
Tuesday 30 July, 6 – 7.30pm
The Haven, Tokomaru St
The candidate nomination period runs from 19 July to 12pm, Friday 16 August.
