Southland District Council is still calling for candidates to put their names forward for by-elections in Edendale-Wyndham and Tuatapere.
Extra members for the two community boards are needed after not enough candidate nominations were received when local government elections were held earlier this year.
With just over a week to go until nominations close, only one candidate’s nomination has been put forward for the Tuatapere Community Board. No nominations have been received yet for either the Edendale or Wyndham subdivisions of the Edendale-Wyndham Community Board.
Candidates have until 12pm on 22 December to get their nominations in.
To be eligible to stand in the by-elections, candidates must be on the electoral roll and a New Zealand citizen.
Nomination forms will be available by calling Council on 0800 732 732, visiting any of Council’s offices, or clicking here for more information
