Residents in the Wallace Community Board area who have not yet voted in the by-election are urged to deliver their voting documents to Southland District Council's office in Invercargill to make the deadline of 12 noon on Friday, 11 November 2011.
All electors in the Wallace Community Board area should have received their voting documents for the by-election last month. Electors who have mislaid their voting documents may obtain a special vote by contacting Council.
"It is recommended that if you haven't posted your voting documents to the processing centre in Christchurch by now that you should arrange to deliver the documents to Southland District Council's Invercargill office," electoral officer Virginia Dillon said.
The by-election is to fill the extraordinary vacancy which arose on the Wallace Community Board following the departure of Joanne Butterfield who resigned in late September. The candidates put forward are Peter Gutsell and Tony Vincent. Both men are residents of the Otautau area.
