Candidates Confirmed For Local Elections

4th April 2019
News, Legal Eagles

The full line-up of candidates standing in the Mansfield District Mayoral and Mansfield District Council and Warsop Parish Council elections, on Thursday 2 May, has been confirmed.

Five candidates will contest the Mayoral election, the fifth to be held in the District. 

They are: 

Andy Abrahams (Labour)
Kate Allsop (Mansfield Independent Forum)
Stephen Garner (Independent)
George Jabbour (Conservative)
Philip Shields  (Independent).



The full list of candidates contesting the 36 wards in the district council election, and other details about the elections, are available on the council's website at www.mansfield.gov.uk/elections

 

It includes details of the candidates for Warsop Parish Council. There will be no election held as the number of candidates nominated is less than the number of seats. 

There will also be a booklet sent to every registered voter in the district - more than 80,000 people - giving details of all the candidates in the Mayoral election. This is something the council has to produce by law for each registered voter. It should be delivered by 15 April.

Residents not yet registered to vote must do so by Friday 12 April if they wish to have their say in May. 

Those already registered but who would like to apply for a postal vote or amend an existing one, need to apply by 5pm on Monday 15 April. 

The deadline for making new applications to vote by proxy is 5pm on Wednesday 24 April (except for medical emergencies or emergencies where a person has been called away as a result of their occupation, service or employment). 



Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm on 2 May. The Mayoral and District counts will take place the following day Friday 3 May and the results will be published on the council's website and social media accounts as they are announced. The results will be live streamed on the council’s Facebook page. 

Residents can find details of their polling stations, which may be different to where they have voted previously, on their poll cards. 



Hayley Barsby, CEO and Returning Officer for Mansfield District Council, said: "With only a few days left to register to vote in these elections, we urge residents in the district to not delay if they would like to have their say on the future direction of the council."
