Turnout up 3%

Turnout in 2017 was 79% and in 2020 hit 82.2% – the highest since 1999. Turnout has been:

  • 2002: 77.0%
  • 2005: 80.9%
  • 2008: 79.5%
  • 2011: 74.2%
  • 2014: 77.9%
  • 2017: 79.8%
  • 2020: 82.2%

Pretty good to have had it increase the last three elections.

A lot of variation by electorate. The top 5 are:

  1. Wgtn Central 89.4%
  2. Selwyn 89.4%
  3. Banks Peninsula 89.1%
  4. Waitaki 88.2%
  5. Ohariu 87.7%

The bottom ones are:

  • Tamaki Makaurau 65.1%
  • Ikaroa-Rawhiti 67.1%
  • Panmure-Otahuhu 67.6%

So gear some electorates have almost 90% turnout but a lot still below 75% also.
