Triennial elections for school boards in Aotearoa New Zealand will now be held between 5 September and 23 September 2022, with the common (or preferred date) being 7 September.
New regulations will permit electronic voting (postal voting will still be available). The Ministry of Education will be consulting on the changes to the regulations in early 2022.
Online election services providers must be accredited by the Ministry of Education. Accreditation will be completed by the end of May 2022. The election process will begin in June.
Bookings are being accepted now (for the Manage-Your-Own license and/or the Full Service package) on a provisional basis until accreditation is complete.
