Estates Committe & Election Cancellations

Please note that with regard to the current & changing Coronavirus circumstances, the Estate Committee meeting scheduled for Tuesday 17 March 2020 is postponed. In case of doubt or query regarding any Estate Committee matter Robyn Davison would be pleased to hear from you.

In addition the local elections scheduled for 07 May 2020 have now been postponed until May 2021. The parish of Woodford cum Membris Parish Council is not affected because we have no scheduled election this year but the effect on the composition of the new unitary authority is not yet clear.

December Election

Make Sure You Can Vote

Daventry District Council has issued the following advice regarding next month’s election…

Poll Cards Being Sent Out

DDC LogoPoll cards are being sent to homes throughout the Daventry constituency ahead of next month’s General Election.

The poll cards contain information about how to vote on polling day, including the location of people’s polling stations and the voting hours, which run from 7am until 10pm on Thursday 12 December.

When voting on the day, it is helpful if people take their poll cards with them, but if you do not have it with you, you can still vote.

Daventry District Council verifies and counts the votes for the Daventry Parliamentary Constituency, which includes Daventry District as well as to two wards from the borough of Wellingborough (Earls Barton and West) and the South Northamptonshire district wards of Harpole & Grange, and Heyfords & Bugbrooke.

You Can Still Register

Those who are not yet registered to vote still have time to register in order to have their say in this election. This should be done at the Government’s Register to Vote page by midnight on Tuesday 26 November.

If You Cannot Vote In Person

People who would like to vote by post have until 5pm on Tuesday 26 November to submit their application. Once people have received their postal vote they should mark their vote on the ballot paper and send it back so that it arrives by close of poll, which is 10pm on Thursday 12 December.

Anyone who cannot get to a polling station and wishes to appoint someone to vote on their behalf can apply for a proxy vote up to 5pm on Wednesday 4 December, though if an elector falls ill or is called away on business after this date, they may be able to apply for a proxy vote up to 5pm on 12 December.
