This version contains 5 Māori constituencies, excluding area outside constituency.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. Māori constituencies are defined at meshblock level.If a regional council decides to have a Māori constituency, the constituencies within the council are known as general constituencies and Māori constituencies.
