PR2181/TS/MF - 03/08/2018

A by-election will be held on Thursday 13 September in Lindfield following the resignation of Councillor Simon Hodgson from the Parish Council.

The by-election, if contested, only concerns registered electors in the Lindfield electoral area; residents living in other areas of Mid Sussex will not be eligible to vote.

Following requests from local electors, a by-election has been called to fill the vacant parish council seat. The candidates for the by-election have yet to be determined and any registered elector of the Lindfield Parish area is eligible for nomination. Local residents have until 4pm on Thursday 16 August 2018 to submit candidate nominations.

The deadline for new voter registration applications is Tuesday 28 August 2018 and the deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on Wednesday 29 August 2018. Recent home movers should check that they have updated the electoral register and will be eligible to vote.
