How did your neighbourhood vote?

00:52, Nov 30 2011

National has emerged as the clear victor of this year's election at a New Zealand-wide level, but how about booth-by-booth? has assembled data from the Electoral Commission into a map showing which polling booths were taken by each party.

National and Labour make up the majority of the booths, with the Greens taking a few, largely in central Wellington.

Only one polling booth was a draw - between National and Labour - in Wainuiomata.

The map reveals some interesting facts about Wellington voters.

Against a predominantly blue background, the suburbs southwest of the CBD - Newtown, Berhampore, Owhiro Bay, Lyall Bay and their surrounds - are a left-wing enclave of Labour and Green supporters.


St Paul's Lutheran Church in Mt Cook attracted more Green supporters than Labour or National voters, as did Brooklyn Community Centre, and Paekakariki's two polling booths, nestled between a line of blue up the coast.

Timberlea Community Centre was the only bastion of red in Upper Hutt, where 95 people voted for Labour against 65 for National.

The map may take a minute or two to fully load all polling places.

Click on a booth to see results and click the small white box at the top-right of the map to go full-screen.
