East Ward By-election 2018

​​​​​​​​​​​We want more Hamiltonians taking part in the decisions that shape their city and the surrounding areas.

One of the most important ways you can do this is by taking part and voting, or by standing for election as a representative on the Hamilton City Council. By voting or standing for election, you have the power to be heard and make changes on the issues you care about.

The East Ward by-election prompted by the passing of Councillor Philip Yeung will take place on Saturday 17 February.
