Following the sad and untimely death of Councillor Steve Rogerson, the Liberal Democrat candidate for Bodmin St Petroc division on the 16th of April, the election for the Bodmin St Petroc Unitary Division will be countermanded and this election has to be re-run within 35 days of 4 May. 

The other candidates (of which there are 3, Labour, Conservative and Mebyon Kernow) will not have to submit a new nomination paper and their nomination will be carried forward.

The election for the Bodmin St Petroc Town Council will still take place on 4 May.
