The Market Overton Neighbourhood Plan referendum will take place on Thursday 23 February 2023 for residents to decide on the question:
'Do you want Rutland County Council to use the neighbourhood plan for the Parish of Market Overton to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?'
To vote in this referendum, you must be registered to vote by no later than midnight on 7 February 2023.
Postal and postal proxy voting
If your proxy wants to vote by post, you must appoint them before they can apply to vote by post - make sure you leave enough time for this. The deadline for them to apply is Wednesday 8 February 2023.
All postal votes will be sent out on or around 23 January 2023.
As there’s still potential for ongoing industrial action by the Royal Mail, we recommend that you return your postal vote as soon as possible. You can use priority post boxes (which have later collection times) as elections are classed as priority mail – find your nearest priority post box.
You can also deliver your postal vote by hand to:
- our Catmose offices, any day up until 10pm on polling day (23 February 2023)
- the polling station, on polling day until 10pm (23 February 2023)
From 17 February 2023, you can email email@example.com if your postal vote:
- is lost
- is damaged - you'll need to return your damaged postal vote and bring proof of your identity to collect the replacement
- has been stolen
- has not arrived
To cancel your postal vote, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our elections team on 01572 722 577 by 5pm on Wednesday 8 February 2023. If you do not cancel your postal vote by this date, you will not be able to vote at your polling station.
To change or cancel your proxy, you must have emailed email@example.com or called our elections team on 01572 722 577 by 5pm on Wednesday 8 February 2023. If you do not change or cancel your proxy vote by this date, your proxy will not be able to vote on your behalf at a polling station.
