Local government elections were held on Saturday 8 October 2016. Local elections are held every three years. For Thames-Coromandel District Council elections, the electors vote for the Mayor, the councillor(s) in their Ward and Community Board members in their Community Board area. Property owners who normally live outside the district may be entitled to vote here too, check the Voting in your local election page below for more information. In the Thames-Coromandel District, we operate a first-past-the-post electoral system, which means that a local government candidate needs to get the majority of the votes to win a place at the Council or Community Board.
