Ticking the Box

Ticking the Box - 2013 Local Body Elections photograph
I really believe it is so important to vote - and make an informed vote - in the local body elections. I've collated all the brochures, a swag of newspaper clippings and adverts, and I've noted the billboards.

And I've gone online to see what I can find.

The following links relate to just the Hastings District Council, the fluoridation debate, the Hastings ward candidates for the Hawke's Bay Regional Council, and the Hawke's Bay District Health Board.

Please note I compiled the list using Google search and also a Facebook name search, so it may not be complete. If you see a gap, or if you want more information added or corrected, please let me know by email. is also worth a visit because in some cases, especially for the HBDHB, there is a lot more information on the candidates than you'll find in the information pack posted out with your voting papers.

URGENT DEADLINE: They suggest you get your voting papers in the mail by Wednesday 09 October to meet the closing date of 12 noon Saturday 12 October.

And remember, if you don't vote, you can't complain J
