What Happens Next With Online Voting?

Online voting remains high on the list of priorities for LGNZ and SOLGM. We’ve been progressing discussions with central government ‘behind the scenes’ for the past few months. Giving approval for the policy and technical work will be one of the first decisions an incoming Government and Minister will take.

The webinar will set out a proposed sector-led approach to a trial of online voting in 2019.

This is a must attend for any council that wants to get into the trial of online voting in 2019.

We’re looking at online voting again as part of a wider project that will provide a more modern voting experience. We’ll touch on what else might be on the agenda.

    Manager, Sector Improvement, SOLGM

    Raymond re-joined SOLGM in June 2014 taking on a new role, Sector Improvement Manager. He has spent most of the last 20 years in local government related roles, most recently with the Department of Internal Affairs.

    He describes his job as two-thirds, providing assistance to the local government sector and one-third providing advice to central government on local government matters.
