Final election results announced today have confirmed there will be no changes to the Council table from the preliminary results.

The final count shows Sir Tim Shadbolt secured 9,672 votes, while top-polling Council candidate Nobby Clark received 10,802 votes.

Council Deputy Electoral Officer Michael Morris said final figures showed voter turnout was 53.01 per cent, slightly lower than at the last election, when returns were 54.9 per cent.

“Invercargill’s returns are typically slightly higher than the national average, and this is reflected again in these results,” Mr Morris said.

The newly elected Invercargill City Council will be sworn in at an inaugural Council meeting on Tuesday 29 October.

Members of the new Bluff Community Board, who were elected unopposed, will be sworn in at their inaugural meeting on Wednesday 30 October.

The final result for the Invercargill City Council elections held on Saturday 12 October is as follows.
