By-Elections to be Held in Whissendine and Ketton

Date Published: 16 June 2017
Rutland County Council

Two by-elections for vacant seats on Rutland County Council are to be held next month, with nomination papers now available for prospective candidates.

By-elections will take place following the resignations of Councillor Kevin Thomas and Councillor Diana MacDuff, who represented Whissendine and Ketton Wards respectively.

Both Ward members stepped down recently due to work commitments.

Nomination papers for the Whissendine and Ketton by-elections can now be obtained from Rutland County Council’s offices in Oakham and must be returned before 4pm on Friday 23rd June.

If the elections are contested, the polls will take place on Thursday 20th July 2017.

Applications to register to vote in either of these by-elections must be submitted before midnight on Tuesday 4th July 2017 and can be made online by visiting the government's Register to Vote website.

Applications, amendments or cancellations of postal or postal proxy votes must be made directly to Rutland County Council’s Electoral Registration Officer by 5pm on the Wednesday 5th July 2017.

For more information about the elections or to contact the Electoral Registration Officer, please email: elections@rutland.gov.uk or call 01572 720 954.
