Election For Council Seats In Borough of Scarborough

Scarborough Town Hall

Published by Karen Liu at 1:22pm 14th March 2019. (Updated at 1:23pm 14th March 2019)

Scarborough Borough Council has announced that an election for all 46 borough council seats will take place on Thursday 2nd May.

Following a review in 2017/18 of Scarborough Borough Council’s ward boundaries by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England, the council will move to a revised 20-ward structure for this May’s elections (from the current 25 wards) with four less seats than the current 50.

The council is therefore advising voters to visit scarborough.gov.uk/elections to find out more information about whether their ward boundary has changed and also to check the location of their polling station.

The council has also issued a Notice of Election for the area’s 39 parish councils, which will take place on 2nd May.

Nomination packs are available for anyone who wishes to stand as a candidate for Scarborough Borough Council and/or for one of the parish councils.

Existing councillors wishing to continue to be councillors will need to complete a pack to be able to stand for election again.

Packs can be obtained by:

Completed nomination papers must be delivered by hand to the Returning Officer at the Town Hall in Scarborough, during normal office hours and no later than 4pm, Wednesday 3rd April.

Anyone not on the register of electors will not be able to vote in the elections.

There is still time for people to register and this can be done easily online at gov.uk/register-to-vote before the deadline of midnight, Friday 12 April.

Alternatively, people can contact the Customer First team for assistance on 01723 232323.

Anyone who will be on holiday on 2nd May can apply to vote by post or by proxy, which is someone that can vote on their behalf at the named elector's usual polling station.

More information about this can be found at scarborough.gov.uk/elections

The deadline for applying to vote by post is 5.00pm, Monday 15th April.

The deadline for applying to vote by proxy is 5.00pm, Wednesday 24th April.
