Local elections: Thursday 2 May
 

 

As local elections approach, Tewkesbury Borough Council is urging residents to make sure they are registered to vote.
 
Residents have until Friday, 12 April 2019 to register to ensure they are able to vote in the borough and parish elections on Thursday, 2 May 2019. All that’s needed is a National Insurance number and just five minutes of time to visit gov.uk/register-to-vote
 
In the event that a registered elector is away or cannot go to their polling station on 2 May 2019 then they can either apply to vote by post or apply to vote by proxy (nominate someone to vote on their behalf) - simply visit yourvotematters.co.uk to download the relevant application form.
Completed applications must be received by the following closing dates:-
·        Application to vote by post - 5pm on Monday 15 April 2019
·        Application to nominate a proxy - 5pm on Wednesday 24 April 2019
 
Stand for what you believe in
 
The borough council would also like to encourage those who are passionate about their local community to consider standing as a councillor. Elections for Tewkesbury Borough Council take place every four years, with 38 councillors elected across 20 wards.
 
·         Nominations for candidates are open and we will be receiving nominations right up until 4pm on Wednesday 3 April 2019. The council will publish its Statements of Persons Nominated by 4pm on Thursday 4 April 2019.
