Voting has closed for local government elections, and voters are now waiting to see who will be at the helm in their communities for the next three years.
Warwick Lampp, chief electoral officer for Electionz, says he's hard at work with election officers counting the votes, but expects Progress Results will be posted to their website later today.
Each council will also declare results on their websites (see list of links below).
After all ordinary and special votes are counted, the final results will be declared by Thursday 17 October.
What do the different types of results mean:
This is an early look at the count so far - not all ordinary votes have been counted, and any votes received on 12 October are still being delivered to the Electoral Officer. Progress results could be published from 2pm on Saturday 12 October as quality assurance checks are completed. But the results could still change.
This includes all ordinary votes, but not all special votes. Electionz expects to announce these later today or tomorrow. Results could change.
This is the final result and includes all ordinary and special votes. These will be announced by Thursday 17 October.
DHB results are declared after all councils within the DHB's boundary have been declared.
