DHB Board elections are held as part of local authority elections. They are held under the provisions of the Local Electoral Act 2001, Local Electoral Regulations 2001, and the New Zealand Health & Disability Act 2000.

DHB Boards have up to 11 members – seven of whom are elected every three years during local body elections. The Minister of Health appoints up to four additional members to fill any gaps in the Board’s expertise. The Minister also appoints the Board Chair and Deputy Chair.
