This year voters are being asked to vote on whether they want to change to the Single Transferable Vote system in Tasman. This is a big decision that follows more than a year of hard work by two dedicated women who want our region to be more democratic in the way we vote.
You can read about Penny Griffith and Liz Thomas and their petition to bring STV voting to Tasman here.
A change is called for to STV because the current voting system is not representative of the many different interests and people who live in this region.
Information on the vote can be found on this link on the Tasman District Council website here.
