RESIDENTS CAN NOW APPLY FOR A SAFER WAY TO VOTE IN THIS YEAR'S ELECTIONS
Residents in the district can apply to receive a postal vote, for elections taking place in May.
On Thursday 6 May 2021 residents in the district will go to the polls to have their say on who represents them locally for Hampshire County Council and the Police & Crime Commissioner. Some ward areas across the district will also hold by-elections.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic voters are being encouraged to think about voting by post and to register for a postal vote especially if they are clinically extremely vulnerable or are otherwise at high risk.
Letters are currently being sent to households in the district explaining the options available on how they can vote safety, either from the comfort of their own homes, by post, or by selecting someone to vote on their behalf – known as proxy.
East Hampshire District Council’s Returning Officer, Lydia Morrison, said:
“Whilst every measure will be in place to ensure Polling stations will be a covid secure environment, the safe and easiest method to cast your vote this year will be by post.
“Applying for a postal vote is quick and easy.”
Anyone wishing to vote by post can apply before 5pm on Tuesday 20 April 2021 by simply visiting the Electoral Commission website. You must be registered to vote in order to have a say at the elections – the easiest way to register is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
Completed forms can either be scanned and emailed to email@example.com or posted back to the address shown on the form.
Whitehill Town Council and Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company
Wednesday 23rd September 2020
Pre-recorded interview with community questions
Following the local election in May 2020, we committed to improving communication between those in power and residents. We have hosted ‘public interest’ meetings with the Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, NHS CCG and Police. Sadly, Covid restrictions mean we currently cannot hold such meetings, but this does not stop us asking questions and seeking answers.
Thank you to everyone who sent in questions over email or through Facebook. We did not guarantee that every individual question would be answered but I asked the regeneration company to answer them all, with the answers given in the Whitehill Town Council and Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company pre recorded interview document that you can find on this page of our website.
WTC & WBRC pre recorded interview document
It references the full list questions asked in Appendix A which is at the end of the document.
As your most local ‘grassroots’ council covering Whitehill & Bordon, we do not control the development but we can fight to ensure your voice is heard.
Cllr Andy Tree
