Election protocols for ICC officers – PDF

Local government elections are held every three years. In 2019, the elections will be held on Saturday 12 October. The period leading up to an election is a time of increased interest and attention on Invercargill City Council officers, particularly in their dealings with current elected members, candidates, and the general public.

These protocols provide guidance for ICC officers, including contractors and consultants, in relation to:

  • interacting and communicating with current elected members, candidates and the public in the pre-election period;
  • participating in political activity (including standing for office) during a local government election;
  • balancing personal and professional interests in a politically neutral way.

For further guidance or for clarification of these guidelines, please contact the Deputy Electoral Officer, Michael Morris, 2118 396 or michael.morris@icc.govt.nz
