The Waitakere and Portage Licensing Trusts each have new members after a by-election was held.
Lorraine Wilson has been elected as the new member for the Auckland City ward of the Portage Licensing Trust.
John Carrodus has been elected as the new member for the Lincoln ward on the Waitakere Licensing Trust.
The by-elections had to be called after members Duncan Macdonald and Brian Neeson resigned from their elected positions.
Electoral officer Dale Ofsoske says voter turnout was very low.
"We had about 12,000 people vote out of more than 70,000."
