More than 2000 Māori voters have already decided they'll be voting in the general electorate in the next elections. Labour fears a hike in numbers of Māori voters shifting to the General Roll could result in the loss of a Māori seat.
From Papakura to Te Awamutu. From Kawhia in the west, to the Coromandel in the East, that’s the territory of the Hauraki-Waikato region. Hamilton city is also a part of this electorate, as well as the heart of the Māori King movement.
