Māori Constituency 2015 (generalised)

This dataset is the definitive set of regional council Māori constituency boundaries for 2015 as defined by the regional councils and Local Government Commission but maintained by Statistics New Zealand (the custodian).

Māori constituencies are established under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division of a region for electoral purposes. Māori constituencies are divisions of regional council areas. They are created, based on population, to be the voting areas within councils.

The boundaries of Māori constituencies may be reviewed before each three-yearly local government election. Regional councils must review their representation arrangements at least once every six years.

Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007.
