Right to demand a poll on the electoral system for GW

Notice is given under section 28(1) of the Local Electoral Act 2001 (the Act) that electors of the Wellington Region have the right to demand (under section 29 of the Act) a poll on a proposal that a specified electoral system be used at the 2022 and 2025 triennial elections of the Wellington Regional Council.

A valid demand for a poll must:

  • Be made in writing
  • Meet the requirements of section 30 of the Act
  • Be signed by at least five percent of the number of electors enrolled as eligible to vote at the 2019 triennial election of the Wellington Regional Council; a valid demand requires the signatures of 18,243 electors
  • Be delivered to the Wellington City office of the Wellington Regional Council - Level 2, 15 Walter Street, Te Aro, Wellington. The demand must be delivered by 5pm on 22 February 2021 for the result of the poll to be valid for the 2022 triennial election of the Wellington Regional Council.

The Local Electoral Act 2001 provides for a choice between the First Past the Post (FPP) and Single Transferable Vote (STV) electoral systems. Unless a poll determines otherwise, the STV electoral system will be used at the Wellington Regional Council’s 2022 triennial election.
