Candidates Announced for Elections in East Riding

Published by Jon Burke at 5:28pm 4th April 2019. (Updated at 5:29pm 4th April 2019)

The list of candidates nominated for local, town and parish council elections in the East Riding on Thursday, 2 May has been published.

The list of all candidates for the county council elections are here.

The candidates for parish elections, including Bridlington Town council, are here.

The first wave of poll cards have already been sent out to residents on the electoral register and eligible to vote with the second wave due to be sent out later this month.

But voters should not worry if, for whatever reason, they don't have a poll card as they do not need one in order to vote.

Returning officer, Caroline Lacey, said:

"Many people still think they need a poll card in order to vote on Thursday, 2 May but that is not the case.

So I'd like to reassure people who are on the electoral register and who may not receive a poll card not to panic as they will still be able to cast their vote without out it."

Residents who wish to vote in the elections and are not already on the electoral register have until Friday 12 April to register.

People already on the electoral register and who completed household enquiry forms which were sent out last year, do not need to register again.

Registration is quick and easy and can be done online. An electoral registration form can be found and completed online via the East Riding of Yorkshire Council website www.eastriding.gov.uk/elections2019 or at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

People who are already on the electoral register but are unable to get to their polling station on Thursday, 2 May are able to vote by post.

An application form can also be found on the council's website www.eastriding.gov.uk/elections2019 and the closing date for a postal application is 5pm on Monday, 15 April.

People can also apply for a proxy vote and the application form can be found at www.eastriding.gov.uk/elections2019 and the deadline for applications is 5pm on Wednesday, 24 April.
