Elections & Voting

Electoral Services is responsible for compiling and maintaining the annual Register of Electors, a record of everyone who lives within the boundaries of the local authority and who is eligible to vote. We also maintain the absent voters' lists i.e. electors who choose to vote by post or through a proxy appointed to vote on their behalf. We are statutorily responsible for organising and running local elections (district, parish), national elections (UK Parliamentary and European Parliamentary) and referendums.
