Notice of Casual Vacancy - Great Heath Ward
A vacancy for a Town Councillor for Mildenhall High Town Council in Great Heath Ward has arisen:
Given the current circumstances, the Government has passed The Coronavirus Act 2020. This has postponed all polls, including by-elections, to 6 May 2021.
In accordance with the latest advice from the Electoral Commission, the Association of Electoral Administrators (AEA) and the National Association of Local Councils (NALC), we are publishing Notices of Vacancy for all casual vacancies which arise within our area. The notice advises if any poll is called for by the electorate then it will be held on 6 May 2021. Please find attached this notice for the vacancy in your area, which should be displayed today, in the parish for the usual period of 14 days.
However, with the current government advice on social distancing remaining in place, there are a few important alterations to the process that I should like to point out to you:
Please also note the attached Notice of Vacancy as a physical notice may not be seen by the public at this time.
With regard to collecting hard copy signatures West Suffolk Council do not believe that it would be appropriate for people to door knock to collect signatures to request an election. We would therefore advise that electors send in their own election requests to West Suffolk Council and they will collate them. During this time they will also accept election requests via electronic means (i.e. by email). Electors can send a scanned copy or photograph of the election request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
