Town Council Elections - 5 May 2022

The parish election taking place on 5 May has now been formally declared. Nomination packs for each ward in the Parish of Whitby are available from our office in the Pannett Gallery. We also have access to a copy of the electoral register, which may be examined and from which we are able to assist in identifying electoral numbers for candidates and subscribers (proposer and seconder). Declared candidates receive their own copy from Scarborough. Candidates can request the up to date register of electors (and list of postal voters) for a parish, or parish ward, using the form available in the nomination packs, or

at www.scarborough.gov.uk/elections

The process for completing and submitting nomination forms is included in the packs.

You can find additional guidance on the Electoral Commission's website: https://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/candidate-or-agent/parish-council-elections-england

Electoral Services staff strongly recommend an informal check of any nomination papers prior to formal submission, to ensure accuracy and completeness and to avoid any rejected papers

You may make an appointment by calling 01723 232309 or emailing electors@scarborough.gov.uk

They advise that this takes around 10 minutes, and if everything is satisfactory, the papers can be formally submitted at the same time.

They suggest booking early, and to avoid leaving it till the last day, as this leaves little time to go away and correct errors.
