Voters go to the polls in emergency Northamptonshire village election


Residents will go to the polls this Thursday (October 22) in a by-election for Spratton Parish Council.

The by-election is being held to fill nine vacancies on the council following a series of recent resignations and polling cards have been issued to all residents in the Spratton Parish area who are registered to vote.

The polling station will be open from 7am to 10pm this Thursday at Spratton Village Hall, in School Road.

When voting at a polling station, it is helpful for people to take their polling card with them, but if they don’t have it they can still vote. The only exception to this rule is anonymous electors, who must present their poll cards in order to vote.

Polling station staff will not be able to give people ballot papers if they arrive at the polling station after 10pm.

Postal votes must be received by the Returning Officer by 10pm on Thursday, October 22. Anyone who has left it too late to post can drop it off at their polling station
