Have your say at the Police and Crime Commissioner Election
West Devon residents are being asked to go to the polls this May to vote for the next Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall.
The election will take place on Thursday 5 May 2016, and West Devon Borough Council is encouraging residents to register so they can vote in the Election. The deadline for registration for the Police and Crime Commissioner Election is 18 April 2016. Visit www.gov.uk/registertovote to register online.
If you would prefer to do a postal vote, the deadline to submit completed applications is 5pm on 19 April 2016 – please go to www.aboutmyvote.co.uk to download an application form.
Residents who are already registered have been sent poll cards through the post with the election information, including where they will be voting. Poll cards were sent last week so look out for your card when it arrives.
There are two changes to polling stations in this Election for residents in Jacobstowe and Brentor. In Jacobstowe, the polling station will be, once again, back in St James Church in Jacobstowe following the completion of the restoration work in the church. In Brentor, for this election only, the polling station will be situated in Christchurch, the church in the centre of the village, as the village hall is unavailable.If you would like to find out more about the Police and Crime Commissioner Election, including the Notice of Election, please visit our website at http://www.westdevon.gov.uk/
