Countdown To Elections Starts
The official countdown to local elections in Mansfield district started yesterday with the publication of the Notices of Election.
The Mayoral, Mansfield District and Warsop Parish Council elections all take place on Thursday 2 May.
Candidates who want to stand for election as Mayor, district or parish councillor now have until 4pm on 3 April to submit nomination papers.
A list of all candidates standing in the local elections will be published on the council's website www.mansfield.gov.uk by 4pm on 4 April.
Residents who want to vote in May but who are not yet registered must do so by Friday 12 April.
It only takes a few minutes to register online, using your National Insurance number, at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or contact Electoral Services on 01623 463345 for a paper application form.
Hayley Barsby, CEO and Returning Officer at Mansfield District Council, said: "These elections give residents the opportunity to decide who they want to represent them at a local government level.
"Councillors decide how to support their community and make decisions that have an impact on the residents' lives so it is an important democratic right that people have their say on who leads them.
"Registering to vote is very quick and easy. I would encourage as many people as possible to register now so they can take part in the ballot on 2 May."
