Napier is broken up into four election wards: Ahuriri, Onekawa-Tamatea, Nelson Park and Taradale. Want to find out what ward you’re in? Simply enter your address or valuation number below to find out the ward you’re in and where you’re eligible to vote.
Following our 2017-18 Representation Review, NCC will move to a full ward system in 2019. That means our 12 councillors are elected from four wards - Ahuriri, Nelson Park, Onekawa-Tamatea and Taradale. Wards work much the same way as seats in a general election, but with an important exception. While you can only vote for candidates in your ward, all Napierites directly vote for Mayor.
