Information for Voters

To vote in the WCDHB Board member elections you needed to be enrolled on the electoral roll within the WCDHB area.

STV is the voting system used by the DHBs. Instead of ticking the candidates you want to vote for, voters number the candidates in order of preference. You put a 1 beside the candidate you like best, then a 2 beside your second choice, 3 by your third choice, and so on. You can vote for as many or as few candidates as you like.

Voting papers were posted out to all electors on the electoral roll in the WCDHB area during the period 16-21 September 2016.
