The Election Timetable has been agreed and is attached. We are publishing our Notice of Election on Monday 18 March and delivery of Nominations will start on Tuesday 19 March. The nomination papers must be hand delivered to the Elections Team at the Gibson Drive Office between 10am – 4pm, Monday - Friday between 19 March and 3 April. Due to the number of nominations we will be receiving, please call the elections team on 01732 876022 to book an appointment. If you do not make an appointment you may have a long wait. This applies to both Borough Council candidates and Parish Council Candidates.
There is going to be a change to the nomination papers and although the Electoral Commission website says you can download the latest version, they are not available yet. We have heard they should be available by the end of January, so hopefully I will be able to show you and confirm the latest packs at the briefing, but I will confirm by email when they become available.
The Electoral Register to complete your nominations forms will be available after the update on 1 March 2019. Please contact the Elections team by email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy.
Looking forward to meeting you all and if you need any further help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
