Auckland Council has announced 150 locations for voting this local body election.

From Friday, extra locations across Auckland will be set up for voters to drop off their orange return envelopes.

Vote Boxes will also be set up at 65 Countdown Supermarkets, 11 Auckland Transport hubs, and all Auckland Council libraries and council service centres.

Twenty-nine pop-up locations will also be established across Tāmaki Makaurau.

Auckland Council's governance services manager Rose Leonard said the council was putting vote boxes in more places where many Aucklanders were on a regular basis.

"We want to make voting as accessible as possible to all eligible voters, from Te Hana all the way through to Pukekohe," Leonard said.

Voting papers need to be returned by midday on 8 October.
