The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Most peo­ple should have re­ceived their vot­ing pa­pers for the lo­cal govern­ment elec­tions by now.

There’s still a cou­ple of weeks un­til each postal vote needs to be in on Oc­to­ber 8 so there’s a lit­tle bit more time to con­sider who you’d like to see on our city coun­cil, district health board and re­gional coun­cil.

Lo­cal govern­ment elec­tions typ­i­cally have a low voter turnout and it would be a shame to see too many peo­ple in our Palmer­ston North com­mu­nity feel­ing com­pla­cent about who is to be­come the lead­ers in our com­mu­nity.

I’d en­cour­age you all to make an ef­fort to seek out in­for­ma­tion on the can­di­dates, de­cide what is­sues are im­por­tant to you and vote.

The op­por­tu­nity only comes around once every three years so make the most of it.
