Nominating yourself or someone else
If you are on the voting roll and eligible to vote, you can nominate yourself. Please remember to sign both parts of the form. If you are nominating someone else, complete the nomination form and make sure it includes all the required contact details and signatures. You can post, hand deliver or email your nomination form/s to the returning officer (see details below).
Nominations close at noon on 6th November.
If you are a candidate, you are invited to submit an optional statement (up to 400 words) and photo. Make sure your statement is received by noon on 6th November so that it can be sent to voters with the voting papers. The returning officer may remove or edit any part of the candidate’s statement if it exceeds 400 words or is offensive or defamatory.
The electoral roll is held at the school office and can be viewed during normal school hours.
Anyone can stand for election for the board of trustees, except for some exclusions. For further information on eligibility visit www.trustee-election.co.nz.
If you are not on the voting roll you must be nominated by a person who is.
A candidate may nominate a person to sit with the returning officer during the vote count to make sure it is done correctly. Please advise the returning officer in writing of your scrutineer’s name and contact details before election day. Candidates cannot be scrutineers.
