Preliminary and final results


Representation for elections

In Kaipara, our Council will consist of the Mayor and nine councillors:

Ward Position(s)
  Mayor (elected 'at large')
Mangawhai-Kaiwaka General Ward   3 positions
Otamatea General Ward 2 positions
Wairoa General Ward 3 positions
Te Moananui o Kaipara Māori Ward 1 position

For the first time Kaipara District Council will have a Māori Ward. Māori Wards will provide a new way for Māori to contribute to decision-making and strengthen Māori representation at Council. Kaipara’s Māori Ward councillor will represent people of Māori descent and bring forward Māori views and aspirations. However, like General Ward councillors, they also represent the entire community in our District. You can view an electorate and ward boundary map on the Stats NZ website.

There will be no district health board elections in 2022.
