7PM:

Polls across Tauranga are now closed for Election 2017, and counting has begun to determine who will be the electorate's MP.

SunLive will be bringing you the local results for Tauranga as they come in.

Tauranga is in the unique position of having three candidates – National's Simon Bridges, Labour's Jan Tinetti, and New Zealand First's Clayton Mitchell – who may well make it into parliament on their respective lists, regardless of how the votes fall tonight.

The electoral commission expects all advance votes to be counted by 8.30pm – all 1.24 million of them (500,000 more people voted early in this election than in 2014).

By 10pm, half of votes cast today are expected to be counted, while by 11.30pm, 100 per cent of votes cast thus far should be tallied.

Keep checking this story for the latest updates on the Tauranga electorate, and follow the conversation on our Facebook page.

On a positive note, Welcome back Winnie and highway enhancements

Posted on 24-09-2017 20:09 | By Murray.Guy

Being such a 'blue' strong hold our city/region has been seriously under funded, abused in regards roading infrastructure, seriously misled, involving in excess of $300 million, with no need to bribe! The 'return of Winston/Clayton' to a position of influence may see Simon Bridges held to account, forced to meet his 'over-due obligations and promises'. The 4 Nov 2008 promise to complete within 6 years the 4-lane Central Corridor has to be in the mix AS DOES the return to Tauranga ratepayers of the $11 million loaned to the NZTA (courtesy of Team Crosby / CEO Stephen Town) to construct the Route K highway extension through The Lakes to Pyes Pa Rd. Remove tolls from Route K immediately, overnight significantly reducing peak congestion, enhancing travel times and safety on Cameron and Cambridge Rds with the transfer of vehicles to Route K. Simon, forget the museum bribe, NOT required!

Anyone one in blue...
