Election Day on 2 May is nearly here, are you ready to use your vote?
You will be voting for candidates for District and Town/ Parish seats at polling stations throughout the Arun District, so make sure you are prepared and ready.
The deadline for registering has now passed, so if you registered on time you should have your poll card and have decided whether you will be voting at a polling station or have opted for a postal or proxy vote.
Polling stations will be open between 7am and 10pm on Thursday 2 May 2019 and any postal votes must be received either at the Arun Civic Centre or at a polling station in your electoral area by 10pm on 2 May so make sure you send them in, or hand deliver them in plenty of time.
The count for both the District and Town/Parish election will take place during the day on Friday 3 May and results will be updated to the Arun District Council website and also on the Arun District Council Twitter feed, @ArunDistrict.
Returning Officer, Arun District Council, Nigel Lynn said “We are looking forward to seeing a good turnout at polling stations on 2 May. We really encourage members of the public to get out there and vote for their local councillors. Having a say in the way their communities and localities are run is so important and we hope to see that reflected on Thursday.”
All 54 seats in the 23 wards of Arun District Council will be up for election, together with all the seats on the Bognor Regis, and Littlehampton Town Councils; and the seats on Aldwick Parish Council – Aldwick West ward, Angmering Parish Council – Angmering Village ward, Middleton-on-Sea and Patching Parish Councils. All the remaining Parish Council elections were uncontested and therefore no poll is required.
