District Council by-elections called for two areas of Mid Sussex

PR2094/MJ/TC - 14/03/2017

Following the recent resignation of two Mid Sussex District Councillors, by-elections have been called. One to elect a Councillor to serve Burgess Hill Franklands Ward and the other to represent Bolney Ward. Both by-elections will be on Thursday 4 May, alongside the West Sussex County Council elections.

The by-elections only concern registered electors in the electoral areas of Burgess Hill Franklands and Bolney; residents living in other areas of Mid Sussex will not vote for District Councillors but will be eligible to vote in County Council elections being held on the same day.

Candidates for the by-elections are yet to be determined and any registered elector in Mid Sussex is eligible for nomination. Local residents have until 4pm on Tuesday 4 April 2017 to submit candidate nominations.

For questions regarding nominations, voter registration or the electoral process please contact Mid Sussex District Council Electoral Services team at elections@midsussex.gov.uk or by calling 01444 477003.

Information about being a Councillor is available from the Council’s website www.midsussex.gov.uk. Additional guidance about being an election candidate and the various election procedures is available online from the Electoral Commission at www.electoralcommission.org.uk.
