Stratford Editorial 30th Mar, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

POLLING cards for the upcoming Police and Crime Commissioner election are being sent out by Stratford District Council this week.

The election will take place on May 5 and the cards are designed to inform residents across Warwickshire where their polling station is and when they can vote.

Residents must either be on the electoral register or have applied to be so by Monday April 18 to be able to vote in the election.

Postal votes are available to any resident on the electoral register and are useful for those unable to get to a polling station on the day due to health reasons or those on holiday or working away.

All completed application forms for postal votes must be submitted to the council by Tuesday April 19.

Lib Dem Nicola Davies, Labour candidate, Julie Jackson, Conservative representative, Philip Seccombe and Independents, David Whitehouse and Ben Twomey are all vying to replace Ron Ball, who has chosen to step down from the role.

Separate arrangements will take place at the end of May and beginning of June for voting in the EU referendum.

Anyone with queries about the election or unsure of their eligibility to vote is asked to call Stratford District Council on 01789 260208.
