Although voting documents have been out for almost two weeks, about 70 per cent of voters in the Waitaki District have yet to return their voting documents.
Waitaki District returning officer David Blair said so far, only 30 per cent of voting documents had been returned.
“This is five to 10 per cent lower than for the same period in 2010 and 2007,” he said.
“The election is the chance for residents and ratepayers to choose the people they want on council and other authorities and they should make the most of that opportunity.”
