Your Choice - 2022 Election Review Consultation

On March 16, 2021, the Mackenzie District Council reviewed its representation arrangements and decided it would like to make some changes to how councillors and community boards are elected. Members of the public were invited to consider these changes and provide feedback.

The goal of this review is to provide for ‘effective representation of communities of interest’ and ‘fair representation of electors’ (as required by the Local Government Act). In this process, the word “fair” means having equal representation for all voters across the district.

Submissions closed on 30th April 2021. 17 submissions were received and one person asked to address Council in person. That took place in Twizel on May 18. Council is currently reviewing those submissions and will advertise a final proposal soon.
