Nominations for the upcoming Council elections close next Friday, 12 August, at noon.
Nominations need to be made on the official form and be delivered to our Electoral Officer by that deadline.
Background information and all the nomination forms (Mayor, Councillors in each ward, and the Wanaka Community Board as well as the Otago Regional Council) are all on our website at –
You will also find the current list of candidates there – this is the list of people who have lodged their nomination with the Electoral Officer, paid their deposit and are an official candidate.
(To be clear, it does not include people who have announced in the media that they are standing – they are not candidates until they have completed the nomination process).
