In May there will be three elections in East Lindsey - but are you registered to vote?
This year there will not only be National General Election where you will choose your MP, there will also be district council elections where you choose your district councillor, and in some areas town or parish council elections.
To be eligible to vote on May 7 you must be registered by Monday, April 20. The process for registering has changed in the last 12 months so everyone now has to register themselves. If you haven’t already done so you can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. If you’re unsure whether you are registered contact the Customer Services Team on 01507 601111.
The deadline to apply for a Postal Vote or to change a Proxy appointment is 5pm on Tuesday, April 21, and the deadline for new completed Proxy applications to be submitted is 5pm on Tuesday, April 28. You can download the application forms at www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/may7 or be posted a copy by calling 01507 601111.
If you intend to stand for election your nomination paper needs to be hand delivered to the Returning Officer at Room 27, Tedder Hall, Manby Park, Manby, Louth, LN11 8UP by 4pm on Thursday, April 9. Your nomination can be delivered by someone else on your behalf.
