Tuesday October 4 is the recommended last date for mailing votes for the Masterton District elections – but Masterton District Council’s mobile ballot box is again hitting the road!
It is recommended that completed voting forms not be posted after Tuesday as they may not be received in time for the 12 noon deadline on Saturday 8 October.
As happened during the 2019 elections, a ballot box will visit coastal communities in Masterton District on Friday 7 October, taking in:
- Tinui (outside the Cabbage Tree Eatery) – 10-10.30am
- Riversdale (outside the Riversdale Beach Store) – 11am-noon
- Castlepoint (outside the Castlepoint Store) – 12.30-1.30pm
The Council is also offering an ‘Order a Ballot Box’ service this election.
It is not permitted for unauthorised people to collect voting papers for others, but if you and four or more neighbours get together and have completed voting papers, but can’t get to one of the drop-off points, you can email [email protected] by noon on Thursday 6 October and we’ll bring the ballot box to you (collection times between 10am and 3pm).
Until close of business on Friday 7 October, completed voting papers can be dropped at:
- Masterton District Council’s offices at:
161 Queen Street, Masterton (Open 9am – 4pm weekdays)
Waiata House, 27 Lincoln Road (Open 9am – 4pm weekdays)
- Masterton District Library (54 Queen Street)
- Mitre10 MEGA (Ngaumutawa Road)
The Council’s Waiata House office will be open for vote drop-offs and special votes until noon on Saturday, 8 October.
People who have not received voting papers can make a special vote by calling into the Council’s offices at Waiata House.
