Elections

We have procedures in place to deal with the post, but would encourage all electors to use online functions systems:

 

The Government has introduced new Regulations. They allow Returning Officers to postpone all elections until 6 May 2021.  Other electoral legislation has not been altered. We have to continue to carry out these functions within the Public Health for England guidelines.  This includes advertising casual vacancies and all electoral registration functions.
