Your electorate is the voting area you live in. Every place in New Zealand is covered by both a general electorate and a Māori electorate. The voters in each electorate choose a member of Parliament to represent them.
The boundaries and names of some electorates have changed since the last general election following a boundary review by the Representation Commission. The main areas of change are the Auckland region, Waikato, Canterbury, Otago and Southland. There is one new electorate in South Auckland called Takanini.
