To stand in local body elections you need to be a New Zealand citizen, aged over 18 and enrolled on the parliamentary electoral roll.
You do not have to live in the DHB’s district to stand for election to its board, but you can’t stand for election in more than one DHB.
DHB employees who meet the eligibility criteria are also able to stand for election.
Nomination forms can now be completed online, but still need to be submitted in hardcopy form with required signatures. You will also be required to pay a deposit of $200.
