Local Government Minister Nanaia Mahuta asks Maori not to leave their ballot papers on the fridge.

Local Government Minister Nanaia Mahuta asks Maori not to leave their ballot papers on the fridge.

She says there are 35 councils where Maori voters must select their Maori ward representatives.

There is also an increase in the number of Maori running for general council and community council seats, as well as for mayor’s office in their communities.

“The next step for Maori voters is to get out and vote. What we’ve seen in both central and local elections is a declining turnout overall, so I hope this opportunity isn’t wasted, and the only way to show that is to vote now. Don’t leave the forms on the fridge and don’t do anything about it. Get out and vote, that’s my message,” says Ms. Mahuta.
