Town’s Derby by-elec­tion prompts re­minders of how you can cast vote

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Advertiser Farming -

VOT­ERS in West Lan­cashire Bor­ough Coun­cil’s Derby Ward will go to the polls on Thurs­day, June 29 for a by-elec­tion to elect a new coun­cil­lor.

If you live in Derby Ward you can vote in the elec­tions even if you can’t get to your polling sta­tion on that day.

If you don’t think you will be able to go to your polling sta­tion then you can ap­ply for a postal vote.

Al­ter­na­tively you can ap­ply for a proxy vote, where some­one you nom­i­nate can go to your polling sta­tion to vote on your be­half.

Kim Web­ber, West Lan­cashire’s re­turn­ing of­fi­cer for the by-elec­tion, ex­plained: “You don’t need to be away or be house­bound to ap­ply for a postal or a proxy vote.

“Any­one who wants to vote in this year’s elec­tion, ei­ther by post, proxy or go­ing to the polling sta­tion, must be on the elec­toral reg­is­ter.”

To ap­ply for a postal or proxy vote form call the elec­tions of­fice on 01695 585014, email elec­tions. of­fice@west­lancs.gov.uk or down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form from www.west­lancs. gov.uk/how­tovote.
