A broader definition of local effects may produce more warping of a predicted map of intraurban voting patterns than does the usual “friends and neighbors” effect. In the 1971 elections in Christchurch City, New Zealand, only a few candidates clearly drew on strong local bases, mainly those standing independently of the main party tickets and those who lived in districts dominated by the opposite party. Local effects were not evident at some polling booths, key words: Christchurch, Elections, Local effects, New Zealand, Voting.
