This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 10 Jul 2019.

This dataset is the provisional 2020 dataset for Constituency. The final 2020 layer is scheduled to be published on 4 December 2019.

The intention of providing this provisional dataset is to make available the boundaries that will be used for the local body elections being held in October 2019.

This dataset is the provisional set of regional council constituency boundaries for 2020 as defined by the regional councils and Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 58 constituencies (excluding Area Outside Regional Council Constituency).

Constituencies are established under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division of a region for electoral purposes.

If a regional council decides to have a Māori constituency, the constituencies within the council are known as general constituencies and Māori constituencies.

Constituencies are divisions of regional council areas. They are defined at meshblock level, and do not coincide with the statistical area 1 (SA1) geography or the statistical area 2 (SA2) geography. They are created, based on population, to be the voting areas within councils. Constituencies are required to reflect communities of interest. Their boundaries, so far as is practicable, coincide with those of territorial authorities or wards. The boundaries of constituencies may be reviewed before each three-yearly local government election. Regional councils must review their representation arrangements at least once every six years. The provisions for such reviews are in the Local Government Act 2002.
