The Electoral Commission is encouraging voters in the Hamilton West electorate to make sure they vote and have their say on who will represent them in Parliament.

‘Election day in the Hamilton West by-election is this Saturday 10 December, so there are only a few more days of voting left,’ says Karl Le Quesne, Chief Electoral Officer.

‘The by-election is being held to elect a local MP for Hamilton West. If you live in the electorate and haven’t voted yet, you have until 7pm on Saturday to cast your vote.’

So far, more than 6,900 people have voted in the by-election at advance voting places across the electorate.

Eight voting places will be open on Thursday 8 December and Friday 9 December, and 20 voting places will be open on election day which is Saturday 10 December. Eligible voters who are not yet enrolled can enrol and vote at any voting place.
